Vintage GALLENGA 20s Golden Velvet Stenciled Tunic
Rare and majestic piece by important early 20th century designer Maria Monaci Gallenga, a contemporary of Fortuny. Ivory velvet full length tunic with panels of chiffon cascading to floor. Stenciled in classic style in gold and silver. Finished with signature Venetian glass beads. A true piece of art worthy of a museum. Slight soiling in spots - nothing very noticeable when held up. Most significantly at left shoulder. More detailed images upon request. Small repairs at hem of chiffon. Bead loss at shoulder where closure should be. Wear commensurate with age. Very good condition.
