Lovely 1950s raw silk cocktail dress in buttercup yellow with heavily beaded bodice. Fitted bodice with square neckline, cap sleeves, beaded all over with silver and white seed beeds and sequins. Fitted straight skirt with back kick pleat. Back metal zip closure.



Brand: n/a reads "Made in crown colony of Hong Kong"
Size: "12" - fits like modern small/medium
Content: raw silk
Condition: VERY GOOD - There are a very few loose or missing beads, and a few discolored. One tiny spot and faint spot near center skirt just below waist seam (visible in photo #4) noted on very close inspection, likely to resolve with dry cleaning, cannot be cleaned at FHV without creating a ring in the silk.

Dress is in very sturdy and wearable condition and these flaws do not significantly detract from its beauty. Price has been adjusted accordingly.

Measured flat:
Bust: 17-19"
Waist: 13"
Hip: 19"

Length: 39"
Skirt: 25"
