Vintage 1920's sensational gold lame dress with fretwork floral worn in 1926 for the original owner of the dress's wedding. This exquisite piece features a simple yet amazingly elegant silhouette and has a sleeveless shape, v neck bodice, straight drop waisted shape with a stunning waist to hem panel of lame fretwork florals. This piece is heavy in weight with its all over construction of metal thread work. She wore this ensemble with a slip from ' Marshall and Snelgrove', floral multicoloured on gold lame shoes and a wax head dress. We only wish we had photographs of her evening ensemble too ! What a spectacular celebration it would have been. This is a beautiful piece that again could be worn for bridal or could be worn for special occasions. 

It is truly a magnificent piece from its time and is a great addition to any 1920's fashion collector or wearer. This garment has only been worn once in its lifetime in 1926. A divine piece to add to any collection.

 … Condition

 

Good Vintage Condition, flaws to note - marks to bodice, a few small missing threads in the fretwork of the floral base and some fraying of the bound edge to the v at the back of the garment. This piece still presents well for its almost a 100 years. With a small repair to the v neck this piece will be wearable for many years to come. Presents beautifully.
