This is an exquisite long black beaded silk gown, fully lined, covered with glass beads of blue, silver, and black. The design depicts large flowers and leaves concentrated around the waist area with lines of silver beading accenting the contour of the body. There is an oval cut-out in the front bodice area and an additional cut-out at the back. The gown has a back zipper for closure and two hooks and eyes for closure at the back neckline area. It measures 16.5" across the bust line, 13.5" across the waist line, and 16.5" across the hip line. It would be equivalent to a modern day Size 6 and is in excellent vintage condition.
