Vintage 1930s Beaded Blouse / Art Deco Bluebirds of Happiness




Absolutely wonderful, vintage 1930s off-white crepe blouse with hand painted and beaded bluebirds. This blouse features, high cowl neckline in front, delicately smocked shoulders and elbows, and deep flowing sleeves that taper to the wrist with tiny snaps. Large mother of pearl buttons up the back. Not lined. Exquisitely sewn. The entire pattern is not beaded, just some as highlights. It is signed “Blue Bird’s Song by Jacqueline.” In excellent condition apart from a few very small faint marks scattered about and a little fray around a button hole, see the last photo.

This is cold rayon crepe. No size tag. Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
