c. 1930's Black Silk Charmeuse Bias Cut Gown with Beaded Net Bodice! Museum Deaccession! From a very well-known fashion museum (who has asked to remain nameless) comes this black silk charmeuse bias-cut gown with the an awesome silver beaded silk net overlay with low "v" necklines and fabulous long draped "v" back ending in long beaded tassel! So gorgeous you keep wondering who the designer might have been on this gown! Near Excellent condition with extreme minor details of minor bead loss, small stress hole in net at mid back (see photo) and one light bead transfer on silk below waist back (see photo). Hard to measure bias cut gowns, but these 1930s gowns are always hard to get on and look great on thin bodies, so I would suggest only you 0-2 gals would be best. If you email me your measurements, I will let you know if it will fit. I have to mention that this gown was given a "make over" at one time with the addition of a zipper in place of what likely was snaps. It's totally hidden by the overlay at back, and frankly you will be glad it's done if you plan to wear this gown, but for you purists... you need to know!
