A stunning and nicely made 1950's cocktail dress in an iridescent blue/chocolate damask. Strapless, pleated bodice with velvet band/bow.

Dress has a full, pleated skirt with an attached petti (shown here with an additional crinoline... not included). Rear metal zipper. Boned. Label reads, "Mandell Couture London."
Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)

Condition: In good condition. A small brownish surface spot on one of the leaves about halfway down the skirt towards the left side. A small whitish mark at the left hem edge. Two tiny pulls. Hint of iron shine.
