1950’s Cocktail Dress & Coat

Magnificent hand sewn hand beaded cocktail dress and matching over coat.
Circa 1950

Red and black crepe silk, the dress being fully embellished in jet black glass beads

No damage, no marks….minimal loss to beading in small areas, which really would be very easy to replace

At some point at has been taken up a good few inches, all there to drop if required, in the coat and dress

I imagine it was made for a one off event and never worn again

It really is breathtakingly beautiful, the way it sparkles…….
