Sisters of the Black Moon
DESCRIPTION  Vintage 1920's pearly pewter flapper dress. Sheer mesh backdrop. Fully beaded and sequined from top to bottom. Thin beaded straps. Sheer draped neckline. Insane art deco design. Diamond design is raised off the back of the dress and moves when you dance or walk. Each diamond is decorated with tons of beading and sequins and the most incredible copper metal threading. The diamonds are also adorned with fringe. Fringe hemline. This is a sheath dress so the sides are open with strands of pearly beads attached to the opposite side. Please note that one of the side strands and a few beads here and there are missing but this piece is in excellent condition for it's age. The second I saw this beauty, I fell madly in love. It is a true design inspiration. They really just do not make things like this anymore. A museum worthy vintage treasure!!!
