1910's Julius Garfinckel Couture Beige Embroidered Lace Blue Silk Sash Dress
Unique mixed-lace dresses from the early 20th century are perennial favorites and this Julius Garfinckel and Co. garment is a showstopper. Garfinckel was a prominent department store based in Washington, D.C. that catered to extremely wealthy clientele. The garment's ethereal silhouette is so modern; the fine fabrics are a treasure trove of needle art. The dress is made up of three different laces which surprisingly work so wonderfully together. I especially adore the blue chenille leave motif embroidery. The 3/4-length sleeve bodice has a gorgeous layered design with dramatic sapphire silk-satin cummerbund. We are excited to add detail pictures so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. A beautiful and angelic piece of wearable fashion history!
This Julius Garfinckel and Co. designer couture dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, stains or holes. The garment slips over the head with a wide structured waistband and over 20 hand-set metal hooks. This dress is over 100 years old and is truly spectacular.
