Silk velvet coat, 1920s
This exquisite period textile is ideal for the collector who appreciates unique style. A one-of-a-kind antique garment guarantees a dramatic fashion statement for your grand entrance.
Our grand coat is fashioned from luxe burgundy silk velvet and embellished with a magnificent collar of embroidered silk. The design intimates an aristocratic insignia—an emblem of membership among the fashion elite.
The Persian-style floral pattern is finely hand-embroidered in shades of rose, olive, and burgundy silk floss against an ivory silk ground. The subtle and sinuous line of the semi-abstract floral motifs trace out the contours of the heart—a hauntingly beautiful design.
There is nothing quite so enduringly chic and timeless as a high style evening coat worn by a woman whose outward charm mirrors her inward grace. If you have a flair for the dramatic, this superlative evening coat was meant for you.
The condition is almost excellent. The lining has been partially replaced.
It measures: 40" bust and waist, 46" hip, 22" sleeve length, and 45" from shoulder to hem.
