1920s Lrgr Silk Devore Beaded Flapper

Many of the twenties pieces I will be listing over the next week or so came from the same estate that† an important labelled Worth cape was found. All of the pieces were carefully stored and are in extraordinary condition. The fabrics are strong and wearable and all are high end, excellently constructed garments. It is a really really beautiful late teens, early twenties dress in cut silk velvet on a chiffon base that drapes absolutely beautifully! The colors are divine - a muted taupe silk chiffon base is covered head to toe with a deco pattern in applied silk velvet† that is a golden taupe shade. The combination is stunning! A soft panel drapes around the hip and is connected by a large beaded medallion. A wide sash drapes down from there and the end is heavily beaded - all by hand. A portion of the skirt has this same beaded deco pattern and the neckline is also beaded with this design. It is a true beauty and in excellent condition - strong and wearable - far more stunning in person as the camera does not quite capture the lushness of the fabric. The silk is strong and the cut will fit a variety of sizes - I have sized it as a Med large but will present just as well on a girl in the 6-8 range - it will just drape more. All the bead work is by hand. Excellent, museum quality condition!
