Description:

Two Evening Gowns, a black velvet gown with rhinestone embellishment, and a cream-colored gown with rhinestone straps; together with a black silk shawl.
Estimate $200-300

They are both around a size 6. I do not think they are period from the '30s but look to be made in the '50s/'60s. The white dress is 61 in. from shoulder to the bottom of the dress. It has a few missing rhinestones on the straps and a small hole on the back. There are also very small areas of staining on the skirt. The black dress is in good condition. The rhinestone bow is coming slightly detached, but just needs to be stitched back on. It is 58 in. from shoulder to bottom of the dress.
