From Me:

I admit, I did bid on this one when it came up.  However, it went way above my max, and with good reason!   This is stunning!  It's in amazing condition for being a century old.  Can you imagine how the rhinestones on this must have sparkled?

1927 Pattern

The v neck, covered in lace, and the fall of the skirt, make me think this is later rather than earlier.  However, it is difficult to tell with the robe de style type gowns.  Either way, this is very much 1920's.
