Antique Late 1910s 1920s B. Altman Beaded Flapper Dress, Sorceress Angel Wing Sleeve Jazz Age Dress with Gold Lamé, S - S/M


Bewitching antique late 1910s or early 1920s beaded black chiffon and satin flapper dress with the most amazing sheer sorceress sleeves in near excellent condition! She's styled with a square cut neckline and her bodice is made up of 3 layers with the outermost sheer silk chiffon layer featuring floral beadwork designs. I cannot get over her sheer sleeves - angel wing or sorceress they both seem fitting. The metallic gold lamé waistband draws the eye and the below knee to ankle length skirt showcases more beadwork designs. She closes with numerous hook/eyes down interior bodice with quite a few snaps to left side of outer layers along with some snaps along waistline and partially down the skirt. Inner waist has a grosgrain type waistband - see pics for detail.

*Waist: 31" (8 1/2" below underarm - there is a stitched seam underneath lamé band)
Hip: up to 52"
Length: 46"
Shoulder Width: Approx. 14 1/2"
Sleeve Length: 37" to pointed hem of winged sleeve

*For reference shown on dress form with 37" bust and 27" waist. The bust was tight so I recommend 34-35" max. Waist fit very nice at 27" due to the inner construction.

Condition: Near Excellent! / Presents Amazing!
2 minor spots to 2nd inner bodice (cannot see on outside).
2 holes to chiffon sleeve near hem, tear to chiffon @ left underarm & tiny hole to bodice. Minor wear spot at left shoulder. Small portion of chiffon at right underarm has detached & needs stitches to close. I've reinforced all loose beads that I discovered.

Please enlarge all pics for detail. I pictured all condition issues - please email for larger images or more information.
