1950s Ice Blue Silk Taffeta Dress & Jacket

A stunning, classic 1950s set in the most beautiful silk taffeta fabric. And the color! It is so unusual to find these pretty colors anymore and this one is a fantastic iced blue with a silver undertone. The only label that remains is it Harzfeld's label that was a higher end department store. If this was a designer piece I would not be surprised - it is very well made and has those high end kind of details that point towards a well made piece. The dress has a full skirt and it is detailed with bands of tightly ruffled bands that follow the seam of the skirt. This same detailing is used to highlight the bust as well with a simpler bodice built under that ruffle. I love the halter tie neckline that leaves the upper back bare. The jacket is a cropped, curved and molded beauty that just slips on for the perfect finish! Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined, with the bodice of the dress backed by the same fabric as the exterior. The dress closes with a side painted metal zipper and the jacket has no closures. It was photoed over a crinoline that is not included. There is a faint mark on the back of the skirt - please see photo. There is no discoloration to the fabric otherwise - any photos that seem that way are just lighting!
