"Gold Lamé Blossoms " Vintage 1920's Black Silk Chiffon & Gold Lamé Dress UK 14-16 US 10-12

Full of opulent original details, rendered in the most luxurious fashion, this rare 1920's piece is a beauty to behold and never again find.

Her square shaped neckline is framed by gathers along each shoulder line, that fall into pleats along the yokes and set off the wonderful V shaped panel along the front of the dress, which is framed by gold threaded lamé embroidery in a checker pattern. Her double tiered style, is set off by two layers, the first in the shape of a silk and lamé tabard, with low cut sidelines, the second a simple dress with short capped lamé sleeves, and a floral lamé embellished hemline. The two layers are sewn together along the shoulder lines and décolletage. The intricate floral lamé embroidery along each hemline is set against soft cotton tulle, with softly scalloped edges, creating the most intricate and eye catching lamé designs.
This dress is lined in black silk.
