Heres a chance that you dont get very often. Based off of the bizarre patterns in the lace, I can tell this dress was made during the Egyptian revival period. I looked over the entire lace overlay and found one teeny tiny break in the lace near the shoulder. Its so small and insignificant that it doesnt distract from the look of the dress. There is a gold lamé slip underneath with straps attached to the lace.
The slip also has pink and green silk running across the top and bottom. Some tiny tears in the pink and green fabric, but nothing major at all. This dress came from New Hartford, Connecticut and I can only assume that an extremely wealthy socialite wore this dress to a party in the 1920s. The pictures speak for themselves. You will absolutely love this dress.
Its worth mentioning that Lady Mary wore a dress of green silk with an overlay of metallic lace in season six of Downton Abbey. She had a limited amount of this rare lace fabric on the front of her dress. This is an ENTIRE dress made of this stuff!
You will only find dresses like this in prolific museum collections. Due to the nature of the lace and how delicate it is, I would not try to wear this unless its with extreme care.
I didnt even like to handle it for displaying and photographing. Enjoy the photos and check out my other items!
