1950s Hand Sequinned Harry Algo Pink Flame Gown

This amazing dress has been completely covered in sequins by hand - a feat when you consider that the entire surface is densely packed with teeny tiny sequins that literally cover over square inch of the knit base. Harry Algo pieces are extremely well tailored and the line was sold at high end shops like the Elizabeth Arden couture salon in NYC. This is a stunning dress whose flame design is hard to pass by. Done in hues of pink the cut is a simple sheath gown that follows the body of the girl wearing it and clings to her curves but skims over the waist area. The neck is high and it is amazingly comfortable to wear due to the knit base. The sequins catch the light and the drama of the design is a showstopper. It is fantastically made and a real find! I love it. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a matching coral silky rayon and closes with a hand set, fine painted metal zipper. The sequin are densely spaced and are all hand applied - this can be seen clearly from the back - super size the label photo to see. I see no bare areas of missing sequins.
