Original Antique vintage 1930s Chinese green silk damask gown in a printed jade green.
This is a beautiful design, definitely Chinese silk fabric and possibly made in China during the 20s / 30s. The dress has a soft Pierrot collar edged in ivory silk and incredible full pleated sleeves finished with a cuff and carved mother for pearl button. The bodice is simple with a belted waist (this has been altered) and a full length column skirt. Printed on the softest silk damask are delicate ivory flowers over the bamboo design of the silk. Unlined.
An exceptional design, I just wish it had a label to find out more!
