Worth Lame Gown c. 1925. Gold brocade lame, pale cream China silk lining, rock crystal ball, rock crystal large beads and cut pieces, diamante in various sizes, four large faux (?) topazes, brass beads, brass spangles and jewelry fittings, pale olive-gold silk hem tape, cream silk chiffon hem lining.

This two piece lame gown comes from the legendary House of Worth. Founded in 1857 by Charles Frederick Worth its reputation for superlative quality couture clothing was rivaled by none. This amazing gown was created by Jean-Charles Worth, grandson to acknowledged founder of French couture, Charles Frederick Worth. The lame fabric is brocaded in a swirling fingerprint motif fabric. A deceptively simple gown on the body, yet the lines, intricate piecing and layering of the fabrics tell a more complex story. The construction of this dress predicts the intricate bias cut draping of the 1930s, as no other 1920s gown I've seen has done. The icing on this confection is the dramatic rock crystal and diamante encrusted jeweled top. I am at a loss for words, it speaks for itself!
