1950's Silk Taffeta Grey Silver Evening Dress & Jacket
Here's a very special & rare vintage evening party or bridal dress & matching short jacket from the late 40's early 50's. Couture quality...red carpet worthy! One of the most stunning dresses we have up right now! This evening party dress is made with the most beautiful high quality silver grey silk taffeta fabric. Strapless boned bodice, metal side zipper, unlined. with a very full skirt. We love the braided weaving & ruched design on the sleeves and dress. The jacket flares out is short and has shorter sleeves. Couture quality. Hand made. A true collectors item that will never go down in value. It's so hard to find these dresses anymore. We think it would make a lovely vintage wedding dress or reception dress for the bride who doesn't want to wear white.

Condition Details: Looks worn only about 2 or 3 times. The entire dress looks almost new except for 2 very small wear areas on the bodice you hardly see. No holes or stains. Some minor general wear near the waist seam on the bodice - see up close photo- near the zipper has darkening where fingers have touched it to zip it up (see red arrow). So faint you can't see it in photos or even in person unless you hold it at an angle in the direct light. If you pull out the ruching on the sides of the bodice there is a faint wear darkening marks where arms have touched the fabric but it is so hard to see you literally have to go looking for it.
