Description

Gorgeous and unique 1920s blue and black striped silk velvet dress. I love the combination of colors, shades of blue velvet with blue silk chiffon stripes running in between. Wide bell sleeves. Dropped waist with striped fabric gathered around hips. Large purple glass decorative buckle front center. Blue silk crepe attached slip. Slips on overhead, no closures.

label: Manahan Incorporated, 280 Boylston Street, Boston

condition: very good, sturdy, wearable condition – excellent for age. Checked for any issues like stains, holes and loose seams. On close inspection there are small brown spots here and there, see photos. A small hole in the sleeve near the cuff and a couple pin sized holes along the right hip. These holes should not be an issue as they are only on the attached fabric around the waist that serves as decoration (not structural). The purple foil lining the glass buckle has deteriorated some and there is a small area of pile loss on the sleeve, see photos. Due to the delicate fabric, the dress has been steamed, not dry cleaned – slight ring around the interior collar and slip underarms have a little discoloration, but neither are visible while wearing.
