Vintage 1920's Nightgown | Sheer Black Silk Chiffon with Chantilly Eyelash Lace & Pink Silk Satin Ribbon Ties | Never Worn | Size SM, MED
This 1920s nightgown is nothing less than exceptional and is truly a rare and unique find. Never worn and made from very sheer black silk chiffon that drapes lovingly along the figure. Gorgeous chantilly eyelash lace traces the upper bodice and slings over the right shoulder, while the left side is held up by wide, rich pink silk ribbon loop-ties. A darling pink silk rosette adorns the upper right side of the chest. Bias cut in the bust with a slinky loose fit through the waist and hip. Two wide silk sewn in ribbons tie in the back to cinch the waist and add a bold splash of color over the derriere. Floor length with a striking chantilly lace hem that is slightly fluted to give a sleek and graceful silhouette. This stunning gown is perfect for the 20s enthusiast and lingerie lover alike. Completely one of a kind and never worn with the original lot tag intact.
CONDITION - Excellent: this gown was purchased but never worn and lovingly stored in a cedar chest since the late 1920s. There is one spot where the eyelash portion of the lace was frayed. One light age mark on the pink ribbon bow on the shoulder, and 2 tiny pinholes in the lower skirt. Other than these small flaws, the gown is in remarkable condition!
