1920s Metallic Beaded Black Silk Flapper

A very beautiful and very wearable original 1920s beaded silk flapper dress is always a special thing to have on the site! You have to realize that these were completely hand done and to survive and be wearable now, some 100 odd years later is almost a miracle. I always feel a little honored to have these and think that yet another fabulous girl might swing them around the dance floor! This one has a black silk base that has a lovely art deco influences panelled design in metallic beads. The beads are shades of copper, gold and pinks, greens and blues with a metallic tint. The top portion has a color of beads that continues around each arm. A panel goes down the front where it meets the waist line, The skirt is remarkable - it is actually a faux wrap - where it looks like beads are missing on the long shots is actually the edge of the skirt that wraps over the other! Huge roses are worked into the panels of beading. Amazing, wearable and of museum quality
