This company made better-quality evening dresses and ball gowns from the 1920s through the 1960s.

Fiber/Care: no tags, nylon net tulle, acetate lining, synthetic or blend taffeta / dry-clean (it's likely washable, but without knowing the fiber content of the taffeta, we wouldn't risk it)

Condition: our new dry-cleaner did a good job, and there are no conspicuous glitches while the dress is being worn. we suspect the few remaining exterior spots will lift with future cleanings. those that remain on the lining won't show, but are more likely permanent. see photos. price reflects minor imperfections. 

*We've had this ball gown professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
