Late Teen/ Early 20's over dress

From the seller:

This vintage Art Deco black purple sequin beaded net flapper tunic dress dates from the 1920s. It is made of a sheer fine black net, with hand beaded black and purple sequins done in a Art Deco abstract floral vine leaf pattern design. This fabulous flapper tunic overdress is loose fitting, with open sides and a matching decorated front and back panel. It is a one size fits most and was meant to be worn over a simple silk slip dress. The dress measures 43 inches long and each panel is 18 inches wide. It is in excellent wearable condition, with no holes or repairs. This is a wonderful piece of wearable Art Deco textile art!

From Me:

I think this is slightly earlier, around 1918 to 1922.   It's a wonderful overdress.
