Offered is an absolutely fantastic remnant from an art deco era evening dress. It is in deep teal velvet and completed with faceted steel beads and small seed bead size. These form a middle eastern design of arches one upon another. This beaded section accounts for 8.5 x 15" of the total 40" length fabric. The piece is backed with a slate blue chiffon. The velvet is scrunched, we have not attempted to press it flat as we think some early velvets were designed this way. The velvet and beading are in good vintage shape without stains or tears. There may be some beads missing, not noticeable if so. We found a couple pea size holes about 20" in on the plain end of the piece. On the back of the liner there is a less than 1" tear. We detect no unusual odor. This piece is authentic and thus perfect for doll clothing of the era or for repairs or re-purposing for a deco theme. Original listing price $35 Item 12256a Lot L5/1/8
