Offered for sale is this exquisite 1920's, Art Deco, Egyptian Assuit sheath dress with matching shawl. The dress is sleeveless and has three tiny snaps across its left shoulder for access and closure. It measures 19" across the bust line, 20" across the waist line, and 20" across the hip line. It falls straight from the shoulders as was the style of this time period. The matching stole/shawl measures 23" across in width and 86" in length. This Egyptian technique is referred to as tulle-bi-talli, which when translated means "net with plating". Tiny silver plated pieces are woven in and out of the netting and then hammered into place. This is a very time consuming process. This ensemble, consisting of the black dress and matching stole/scarf is in excellent vintage condition.
