1920 Whimsical Iridescent Pink Silk Robe de Style Dress
Coquette! whimsical and festive iridescent pink silk party dress dating to the late teens early 1920s, done in the robe de style. With overlapped v front and back with dropped waist that sits snug on the hips, with tight smocking of the skirt here. Grand fluffy silk bow with streamers on one side. Full skirt that is longer in the back, with the addition of appliquéd multi pointed star shaped medallions each side of the skirt accented with a center floral done in tinted ribbon work, deep interior facing of iridescent blue silk. Fancy and definitive of a short period in early 20th century fashion, probably French – no labels.
Antique condition is overall good, is uncleaned as found, with a very few pindot holes, some pin prick marks on the shoulder strap perhaps where a corsage was attached? Some very mild discoloration along edges of bodice, a few tiny splits on the binding of the arm opening, repairable, coin sized faint drip stain on one of the petals of the bow.
Chest measures 38″, hips 36″, length in front 41″ at the back 55″.
