Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
No labels of any kind, so it is hard to know its origins, other than what its previous owner told me - that it was acquired in the seventies in London.
The size of the coat is small (see below for measurements).
It has no fastenings but is intended to be worn open. The coat is fitted as are the sleeves, which are puffy at shoulders then narrow in for the arm with shaping at the elbow for movement. Overall it definitely has the shape of the 70s and I can imagine it being worn equally well over jeans or a long flowing dress.
The woven design is chinoiserie in style and the back in particular has the most amazing images of a tree with lanterns and an oriental lady with parasol. It is very beautiful.
Condition is very good with only some signs of gentle use - a little fraying on the inside of one of the cuffs, and the cotton lining has a couple of small marks, but no damage at all.
