1920's Beaded Embroidered Blush-Pink French Couture Silk Petal Deco Dress
There are lots of lovely antique garments still in existence, but every once in a while I come across one that stops me dead in my tracks. This is an extraordinarily beautiful and exceptional 1920's French couture museum quality blush pink semi-sheer silk chiffon tiered petal flapper dance dress. The colorful scenic floral embroidered motif throughout is pure wearable art. The dress is also embellished all over with thousands of glass-beads and rhinestones, whose circular cuts create a dazzling sparkle. The work is entirely hand applied with 3-dimensional aspects throughout. This work must have taken months to complete. I love the drop-waist sleeveless silhouette with asymmetric two-tone draped chiffon sash. The tiered petal skirting really sets this garment apart from other flapper dresses of the time. The alluring petals are individual panels with sensational movement. Would make a stunning wedding guest or bridal look! We added many pictures so you can appreciate and understand the rare workmanship.
This highly coveted 1920's French haute couture flapper dress is in beautiful wearable condition with no rips, holes or repairs. The garment slips over the head with no additional closures. Only signs of wear are minor underarm discolor and some missing beadwork which is not noticeable when worn. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous French designer like Chanel or Jeanne Lanvin, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from this era. An investment dress that will only increase in value.
