Vintage dress yoke - gelatin sequins and glass beads

£19.99

Product description

Eye catching vintage dress yoke 14" wide x 11.5" centre front length x 20" full length from shoulder / 35.5 cm x 29 cm x 51 cm used and reclaimed. Mounted on black tulle net, the black outlines are faceted black glass flat back beads mounted on twin cord braid giving a heavy, fixed outline. The decoration is made in .25" / .5 cm pink and blue faceted flat back beads and gold coloured seed beads with black gelatin sequins filling in the three large leaf shapes. Gelatin sequins date from the 1920's and will melt if subjected to heat or water, apparently even a hot dancing partner's hand could leave a mark. This has been reclaimed and is showing its age with the weaker tulle giving way in places. There is also an old repair on the left outer edge where the design turns in to form the left side of the drop V centre front, if you compare it with the right side you will see there is a missing shape that had 3 of the larger coloured beads in it.
