Antique Dress Black Silk Velvet Gown Edwardian Downton Abbey Era Beaded Details 36" Bust
This type of antique clothing is getting more rare to find all the time- an Edwardian to early 1920s vintage gown of velvet in jet black; it has low side details, with large covered buttons and a waist to hem fringe that goes all the way around the back.All of this is trimmed in silk piping.
It has the inner cotton bustier with lots of hooks and eyes, and opens for entering at the side under the side "pannier". It has a lovely beaded front belt. No label, but reminds me of Paul Poiret. Absolutely gorgeous.
