Antique lace dress, art deco dress, flapper dress

  • $14500 CAD

A heart wrenching sweet antique lace dress, from around the turn of the century - up to the 1920s. It is almost a flapper dress in style, yet it does not have the drop waist and the straight lines. Rather, it boasts several layers of embroidered netting and lace that snap and hook together at the front. The skirt is a double layer yet the whole things is sheer and sexy with an odd sense of innocence to it.
The condition of this item is far from perfect and it looks like it has seen a lot of fun times - the stories this dress would be able to tell! There are stains, discoloration, holes and tears, and the old material is really too fragile to be worn (unless you'd like to create some more holes) - this item would be best as a display-only piece on a small sized mannequin. Best guess is that this is a size 0-2. Alternatively, the material could be used in other projects.  I have not attempted to wash or clean it due to the fragility of the material. There is one snap button missing, yet all the little mother of pearl buttons to the front seem to be there.
