This beautiful dress is in black thick silkesatin. It is beaded with black stones, which I believe is original. It has several tufts of black stone hanging in the attached chiffon. Upper is lace in silver thread. On the down at the edge of the dress is a large piece embroidered with black pearl embroidery. The dress is stunning and is in excellent condition. The Label read  Rouvier Robes & Modes 135 Faury St. S.W.
