Description

Original 1920s Assuit dress. This is not a modern reproduction and is densely covered in metal motifs. These are some of the most rare and unusual motifs I have seen on a 1920s Assuit dress in a long time. They include dogs; boats or possibly geese; dancing horses and men; brides with cross-shaped heads; pagoda like churches. It's quite spectacular for these alone. The sleeves and the neckline are edged in silver lamé, and the hem is backed in grosgrain ribbon. This dress is a good size and in very good and wearable condition. It has repairs throughout which are completely lost over a black slip, even over a jewel colour they are well disguised in the shadows of the tulle. The tulle is strong and the metal bright and sparkling. Please ZOOM all PHOTOS for full details of CONDITION and MEASUREMENTS. **Photographed over black and lamé slips; belted and unbelted. Sells without a slip or belt** LAYAWAY available, details on request.
