Early 1950s Cream and Black Color Block Dress with Beaded Egyptian Neckline, Jersey Bodice and Full Textured Skirt
*Black Jersey Bodice
*Textured (like linen) Full Skirt
*Pockets in Skirt
Label: Bonwit Teller, Philadelphia
The jersey bodice is lined with an organza crepe. The full skirt is unlined. The bodice closes with a metal zipper that comes undone all the way like a jacket so you have to put the two attends together in order to zip it up. There are also snaps in the skirt and a hook & eye at the bottom of the bodice where it meets the skirt. Very well tailored dress, would be good for study given its small size.
Condition: Amazing condition, possibly unworn. Six or seven beads missing from one row on the back of the collar, will need attention before wear.
