Perfect to wear to Downton Abbey. What a wonderful shade of blue! Deep turquoise/teal silk crepe covered in shiny glass beads. Beaded tassel hem with pointed edge. No side or back closure - slips over head.
G&E Spitzer of Vienna embroidered pink chiffon and ivory satin gown with day and evening bodices, circa Because of the high collar, I assume the day bodice is shown, but such coverage was also common for dinner and reception gowns.
