Vintage beaded flapper dress metallic lace 1920s

A fabulous vintage flapper dress, possibly one of the finest beaded dresses I have ever sold. This dress has it all. It is fashioned of a metallic silk fabric and has heavy metallic lace trim with pearl beading throughout. The skirting is done with a silk chiffon trim with the lower part of the silk trimmed again with the metallic lace with pearl beading. The dress is a two piece construction. The dress has thin straps and has a bodice type of vest that goes over the top. It is spectacular. The closure on this dress is a rear hook and eye and snap closure. It is hidden under the top bodice. The top bodice attaches to the straps with snaps. The lower edge of this dress also has an ornate metallic trim. One of the things I just love about this dress is that it is wearable. Totally. And by that I mean that the dress is not weighty with elaborate bead designs, and when you have that situation you are always wary that the beads could give way and cause a scene if you know what I mean. This dress by contrast has pearl beading, but the major glitz of this dress is the metallic lace trim which abounds on the dress and gives it the gorgeous look that it has. There is not a lot of weight.

Condition: Dress is in very good condition. There is some slight oxidation to the metallic trim on the front of the dress... that is the greenish cast to some of the metal that you are seeing... it is a patina thing and is not all that glaring... I personally would leave it as it is yet another lovely coloring to the dress. The dress is strong and wearable with no tears or holes.... there is a very small repair in the lace at the hem, and you have to look to notice it... There is also a small repair to the skirting which is under the black chiffon. It is very small and not noticed. Size: Measurements are from the dress laid flat and as follows. First of all, my mannequin measures 36Bust, 26 waist, 36 hip. If you are near there, you will have no problem. LAID FLAT: Underarm to underarm measures 20". Shoulder to bottom hemline measures 57". Waistline side seam to side seam measures 20" Hipline side seam to side seam measures 20" Please note that no ease is provided in these measurements.
