Vintage 1920s Cocktail Dress, Black Silk Chiffon with Gold Beadwork

Vintage 1920s Cocktail Dress, Black Silk Chiffon with Gold Beadwork

This is a gorgeous 1920s silk cocktail dress. It's made from two layers of black silk chiffon, intricately beaded into a beautiful art deco design with gold bugle beads. A zigzag design wraps around the hips, with abstract shapes and leaves, and rows of beaded lines. The dress has a straight fit, and would best suit an XS to allow the fabric to drape over the body. There are two short side slits, and the dress is lined in the black silk chiffon so it appears more opaque when worn.

COLOR: Black, Gold

MATERIAL: Silk, Beads


CONDITION: Very good overall. There are a few areas of bead loss or where the end of a bead cluster has a loose thread. The neckline has some bead loss along the edge, and the shoulder seams have some bead loss as well. The silk is strong and this dress is very wearable.

Hip: 32 in. - 34 in. Max (81 cm - 87 cm)
