Very good vintage shape with minor cosmetic imperfections. Cleaned and freshened. 85+ years old.

Underarms have minor darkening, should not show during wear. There are a few holes to the fishnet in one small area by rear shoulder, a tiny hole at opposite rear shoulder, and one little hole in mesh under an arm...see photos. One of the gores of skirt has a faint darkish spot low down next to two tiny pale marks. Look over photos. Blemishes are factored into pricing. 

Dress remains a knockout and photographs like a dream.


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Minor signs of previous use and age are normal and expected for all true vintage pieces. Flaws and issues are carefully noted/photographed, and our detailed photos give you a good idea of the look of each garment.
