The Mattie Talmack name is largely forgotten today, but Mr. Talmack's design house produced some gorgeous dresses. Likely designed by John Moore, this paisley silk shantung sheath dress is adorned with elaborate frog closures over the side zipper. Apricot and pink are touched with gold metallic threads. Sold for $100 in 1956 (about $832 in today's dollar.)
