Product Description

From the eclectic estate of a vintage clothing collector, a well-known and stylish lady in Historic Riverside, California -- we acquired over 250 pieces from her collection, all pre-40's, to pass on to new and appreciative homes. Items were well cared for overall and have not seen much light in over 30 years.


Here we have a super Art Deco classic drop waist dress - in an abstract Art Deco pattern of alternating flowers, leaves, and some type of fruit, probably of a citrus variety. Deep navy blue on a soft taupe, or blend of lightest grey and tan. The silk creates a soft sheen. Shirring along the front drop waistline, wide sleeves that end in narrowed cuffs with a snap, and a collar with v-neck dip. Would look great with a dark blue narrow scarf tie under the collar hanging down front- the right accessory for the flapper look. 

Condition is good for 1920's silk- no shattering of fabric and no MAJOR issues. BUT there is some darkening of fabric under the arms as you can see in a photo to show this (take it in here or just keep arms down and wear in low lighting). And there is also two tiny tears on the front- hard to notice in the busy pattern (also shown in a photo above my hand). If you wear a matching taupe-colored slip or just put some backing on the fabric, this is not a big deal. 

Check measurements carefully, but remember garment should hang loosely -- Thus any medium to large size can be right for this dress!

A NOTE to REMEMBER, Disclaimers and Such: IF YOU ARE NEW TO VINTAGE: Welcome! But A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so special. They should be treated with respect and preservation, as they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character! Please don't hang them on wire hangars or wash them like any new item. I suggest gentle soaking in Oxi Clean or specialty dry cleaning. Please take care of your garment.
I do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first! With 9 years experience in selling vintage, you can trust my expertise as I describe it, for the most part!
