Original 1920's As Is ( Study Piece ) Silk Dress - In A Striking Deco Print in Orange
Vintage 1920's as is / study piece silk dress in a striking deco print in orange. This is a fabulous piece in such a striking art deco print in burnt and zesty oranges. A piece that evokes such a change in fashion of the time, its a great piece to aid in fashion study or research. This dress features a v neckline, long sleeve with small cuff, dropped waist with scalloped bias trim detailing and a slight gathered skirt. This dress will have seen such a lot in its 100 years and as such does show signs of its age. Please see the condition report below. We would advise to use this piece for study or research but if handles with care could be restored to be able to be worn once more. Please see photographs as part of the description.
The print and colouring of the piece is why we fell in love with the garment. So iconic of its time and oozing emotions of an era of such change. A great piece to add to any print, 1920's or art deco collector or wearer.
