1920s Gold Bullion Chemise Flapper Top
item WS00087

A rare surviving example of flapper era elegance at its best - gold bullion trimmed with black silk at the slinky split cuffs. Form-fitting fabric is like liquid metal with patina. Ingenious horizontal pleats at the front waistline. Is it as great as it looks? No - it's BETTER. We've yet to see another piece from the era that is full bullion and not just trimmed or pieced. Pull-over style with closures at the top of right shoulder only. Will fit up to a size 4, at most - has some give and stretch from the measurements. No label.
