A true work of art in this turn-of-the-century, handmade silk coat/jacket with braided trim and interspersed floral designs. The pictures truly do not do justice to this exquisitely designed oriental style piece...the richess of the black silk, the palest of pink and mint green floral embroidered hand-sewn appliques, braided trim in soft beige and mint green, and with two slender tapered ties that hang down the front of the coat extending from the last button closures...can only fully appreciated once in hand.

This piece is in excellent shape for its age, with only very slight discoloring on the braid trim in few areas; one light mark on the outside (see picture), and a few water marks on the inside pale blue silk lining. There are no tears or snags in the material - inside and out, and the colors are still quite vivid in muted tones

Truly a conversation piece that can be with silk pants as a jacket, or as a dress with tights. I would equate the size to run possibly around a size 5-6 (American sizing), but be sure to review the measurements listed below for a better picture of proper sizing

Note of interest: This hand-sewn piece when purchased many years ago at an auction was included in some items from the Mary Pickford collection, and touted as a garment that she actually wore. Unfortunately, paperwork from the auction has long since been misplaced.

Coat Dimensions: 16" underarm across front; 14" around the collar; 22" from underarm to coat and (length); 30" from top shoulder to coat end (length); 16" across waist area; 25" measure across bottom of coat; back has slit opening.

A piece that brings to mind a time period where quality materials and style spoke volumes in grace and elegance in wear.
Original price $99
