Vintage 1920's Arthur Weiss Couture Metallic Art Deco Embroidered Silk Dress



Arthur Weiss was one of the most popular American design houses operating during the art-deco movement. The garment's unstructured style is strikingly modern yet the unique metallic surrealist deco floral embroidery is a treasure trove of antique needle art. A labor intensive, hand-stitched piece like this would have been very high quality at the time. The hazelnut color used for the silk-rayon fabric works beautifully with the pink satin vanity panel insert. The bodice features an ercu lace collar and colorful floral corsage applique. A figure flattering drop-waist skirt is complete with middle bow-tie and unique invert front gathering. The most striking aspect of this exquisite high society dress is the quality. Pieces like this garment represent days and weeks of hard work and dedication towards making the garment look and feel exactly like a slice of heaven. Measurements Bust:38 inches Hips:42 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:45 inches This 1920's Arthur Weiss designer dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips or holes. The garment slips over the head with no additional closures. Only sign of age are a few faint surface spots. Please message for detailed pictures. This dress is over 90 years old and is truly spectacular.
