We at Silver Screen Loungerie, offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring items, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This beautifully-made silk night dress is one of our prettiest lingerie pieces from the late-1920s. The fabric is a true French silk crepe-de-chine with floral figures woven in. There is no makers label, as most lingerie from 1920s France was made “one-of-a-kind” for just one client. This gown is very similar to one we have here that we know originated from the family of Baron Philippe de Rothschild – the French wine-making family. The silk fabric is incredibly soft, and it looks and feels the same on the inside, as well as the outside.
The gown is beautifully-made, with the upper part of the gown having the most-beautiful blue-threaded embroidery. The same embroidery appears on a small pocket over the left hip, and the waist ties are embroidered at their ends. There is also an embroidered ‘bridge’ piece across the back V neckline. Of course there are narrow French seams at the sides!
This wonderful night dress is as ready to wear as it was when it was originally made in the 1920s! …A wonderful and wearable addition to a buyer’s vintage lingerie collection!
