Beautiful American ball gown in powder pink satin embroidered with sequins and rhinestones, by Harvey Berin, designed by Karen Stark dating from the 1950s. Whalebone bustier highlighted with pleated satin on the plunging bosom with large bare back neckline closed by zip. Wide cup skirt with pink tulle petticoat. Large sinuous stems loaded with flowers in sequin embroidery, iridescent pearls, daisies and rhinestone cabochons. Hand-stitched finish and bustier lining in faille à la couleur. Skirt lining in white tarlatan. To note three tiny rings on the front of the skirt difficult to observe, otherwise clean and very resistant silk despite some very rare missing embroidery. Very nice condition of colour and conservation.
