"Art Deco Roses" Vintage 1920's Black Beaded Evening Dress UK 12-14 US 8-10


Full of opulent original details, rendered in the most luxurious fashion, this rare 1920's piece is a beauty to behold. Constructed on a double layered cotton voile base, and embellished with trailing black rocaille beads and black bugle beads, with larger black beads found along the neckline and armholes, this spectacular dress is sure to steal your heart. 

The rounded neckline of the dress is framed by a border of black bugle beads, which set off the wide shoulder straps and deep sleeveless cut. The elegant long line of the dress showcases the incredible bead work which contours Art Deco styled beaded roses which are scattered throughout the dress. Finished with a pointed design along the hemline, this dress showcases the iconic style and decadence of the era.
