This extraordinary gown is from an era when femininity was at its height and it was quite common and expected of women to dress in a gown such as this for the evening and bedtime. This was likely bought at a high-end department store by someone who was well off as a gift for their housewife, the average middle-class couple would not have be able to afford a luxurious gown such as this at the time it was made. Gown was purchased in California and may have belonged to a starlet or a Hollywood producer's wife.
The cloth tag embroidered in pink/peach thread reads: Gotham Gold Stripe Size 32 (bust) on the front side and All Nylon on the backside. This vintage gown is in pristine condition with no issues noted. Estimated dating is 1950's. Color: Pink/Peach. Size: 32 (bust), length is about 44 inches from top of shoulder to bottom of hem.
Would make an unforgettable one of a kind gift for someone who appreciates fine vintage lingerie!
