1950s Deep Blue Floral Demi-Couture Level Silk Dress

I highly suspect that this is a piece of demi-couture that has long lost its label. It has that feel and the workmanship supports this. I have taken a photo of the inner seams and you can see that the edges are hand finished and others are ribbon finished. Regardless of its origins it's a stunning piece that is of very high quality and I think that in person you will be more then pleased with it. The dress is almost startlingly in its beauty and exquisite construction. It is made of a beautiful rich silk satin that has been custom screened with a deep, rich blue floral print that has a soft and romantic feel. The tones and washed floral pattern is beautiful and the effect of those blue hues against the black is beautiful. The neckline is cut square with capped high sleeves and a simple fitted bodice. The waist nips in and the skirt has an stunning curve to it with panniers and slight bustling at the hips to create that beautiful curved shape. It has its original belt that wraps around the waist to add even more shape and from which a large half bow is attached. This ends in a beautiful fringe. It is refined glamour mixed with the touch of the avant garde and very beautiful. Excellent condition
