Bergdorf Goodman 20s Flapper Dress Edwardian Style Vintage Millinery Flower Sash For Sale
Wonderful 1920s with soft Edwardian feel true vintage dress, is this one to die for or what??? Superb and unsigned, but I was told by Estate sale representative that per family all the clothing was from a 1920s trousseau made by Bergdorf Goodman - the other two outfits I am listing from the same estateare both signed / labeled. (note: other two have already sold!)The quality and whimsical design of this dress is definitely on par - if not beyond in terms of whimsy! - with the other outfits I have listed.This awe inspiring ball gown is made of flesh under purple / fushcia netting with layers and layers in the skirt and a green taffeta with wonderful violets sash. I have not cleaned or steamed any of these pieces, so they are presented as found... I am saving the fine dry cleaners and any repairs for the new owner, so that they may be done according to personal collector specifications as I am not an expert, just a lover of beautiful things! This dress shows small bits of wear as noted - I actually wounded the dress myself as I brushed by a door hinge and caught netting - darn it! about 6 inches across the front, so the dress won itself a 99 cent sale! Needs to be loved and taken care of by another - wish I had the timeand skill for these awesome museum quality pieces!Also, the worst spot of wear to shoulder netting is noted - multiple small spots of wear - most the size of a pencil head and some up to 2 inches - I counted about 10 spots, but I am fairly certain there are no more than 20 - mostly small - spots of wear to netiing. I also found one tear through one inner layer of netting - about 6 inches up from bottom, so not so noticeable. There may be more that I missed, but not alot! There is also a kind of "rough edge" at the side closures - does not really look like it needs a repair - but may need to be steamed and placed. Please note that I will attempt to pack this dress carefully in plenty of tissue paper and it will be sent priority, but it will have to be pressed down a bit in box and may need to hang out a little when it gets to you... don't worry, I will be very careful, generally people love my packing, - but it's a big fluffy dress and difficult to fold down.Measurements are as follows:
Flat across the front pit to pit 16 inches; waist 13 inches; shoulder to long hem approximate 48 inches; shoulder to short hem approx34 inches; sash is approximately 36 inches long and 6 inches across; shoulder to approximate waist about 17 inches; ruffle about 12 inches. Just what an amazing dress!

To international buyers : First, I love you! and am sorry that it is so complicated and expensive to ship internationally. I only ship insured packages and I charge a handling fee to cover insurance. So far, I have paid 10 or more us dollars additionally from my own pocket for almost every packet I have sent overseas, but you have my word that I will refund any amount greater than 1 us dollar over the money you have paid for actual shipping costs. I am happy to ship insured anywhere that allows my items up to allowed insurable values! I do not have a standard for combining shipping but I am happy to combine shipping whenever possible and send you an adjusted invoice to reflect combined shipping, or if you pay then I will refund all charges in excess of actual cost of insured shipping. I only allow Priority Small Flat Rate Box or Express Flat Rate Envelope- and some countries like UK and Japan must ship Express because insurance is not available with Priority. I am happy to try for the least expensive shipping that allows insurance if that is your preference - just let me know and I will try to get a less expensive route and refund the difference, but so far I have not had much luck because I do insist on insurance. It is your responsibility to know if item is prohibited to be shipped to your country (ie my post office will deny gold and silver jewelry to be shipped overseas, so I know not to include those items internationally - if you know anything different, please let me know!) and also you are responsible for any customs, duties, import taxes and/ or fees of any kind that your country will charge. You are also responsible for knowing the value cap for insured packets to your country and may not offer on individual items that exceed the cap (varies from country to country, so I have not placed limits). Multiple items in one lot may be divided in to several insurable packets. You are also responsible for items that are being held, that are seized or lost by your customs office. I happily accept returns of items in exact condition described in listing. I do not, in any case, refund original or return shipping fees, those are always buyers responsibility. US Postal Service is currently unable to insure packets to Italy and parts of Africa among other countries, so I regret that I am unable to send uninsured packets at this time. I am happy to combine shipping and potentially waive extra shipping and handling fees; however, there are often limits on value per packet, so final amount will be determined on a case by case basis (usually will be fine - especially relatively inexpensive items) and a refund will be given or invoice adjustment to reflect accurate amounts. Finally, I charge a handling fee for international packets that will partly cover insurance and/or items being divided into multiple packets if there are value limits. That said, thank you very much for offerding on my sales, and I will be so happy to have overseas friends! And Sorry it is sooo complicated, maybe things will get easier in this amazing modern age!
