1920s Fine Sequin Silk Chiffon Top

If I did not know the source of this top and the fact that it did indeed come from the same estate that many of the 1920s piece I am listing came from I would almost think it a later period. It is in such fantastic condition and feels so modern it is astounding! It still retains its little early size tag at the neck and was created with some of the best sequin work I have ever encountered. The finest deep red silk chiffon has tiny hand applied sequins in black and clear running over hand dyed striping done to the silk. It is cardigan style and all the interior work is completely done by hand. Wonderful!! Excellent condition

Shoulders: 15"
Sleeves: 22"
Bust: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Total length: 18" from neck to bottom hem

Unlined and closes with hidden snaps down the front. Note the color present as a far deeper red in person. Sequins are hand applied and the seams French finished.

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
