Black and Gold Sari, Unknown Work, Ruth St. Denis
Black silk sari. Possibly worn by Ruth St. Denis in a revival of The Dance of the Black and Gold Sari.
Long piece of black silk georgette gathered and pleated in two places. The sari is trimmed with gold lamé, the end of the veil section is trimmed with a deep band of gold lamé fabric. The costume appears relatively unworn and most likely dates from the end of RSD's career.
