Vintage Golden Beaded and Tassled Flapper Dress Unbranded - Size: One size: regular - Metallics - Cocktail dress

£75.00

Product description

A real stand-out piece. Delicately decorated with a dazzling variety of beads, and featuring long tassles (also beaded), this dress has a metallic sheen and terrific shaping which extends to the straps.

Exact vintage is unknown - it is not 1920's, although the style definitely is - as, although no fabric label is present, there is a body-hugging stretch to the metallic outer fabric, and the lining at least seems to be a polyester. The size label (see below) and fabric suggest not in the the last few years.

The dress is very well made, shaped and decorated, and is fully lined - not a 'fancy dress' copy - possibly for the stage? Between the fabric and the beadings, the dress is a little heavy!

No branding is present, the only label being a size label, showing "44".

armpit-to-armpit = 17", length = 44"

Please note, some few beads are missing - you have to look closely to notice! Externally, the dress is in very good condition, although there appear to be signs of discolouration due to wear inside the shoulder straps.
