What a stunning finish to a late teens or early 1920s ensemble! This fabulous coat dates to the very late teens, and will easily flatter any early dress. Despite the fact that is made of positively luxurious silk satin, it is made to keep you warm - there is a soft, warm interfacing between the outer silk and crepe silk lining, that gives the coat an almost quilted, blanket like texture. Really, you'll not want to take it off. Shirring at the inside back of the wide collar gives it a bit of lift. And the shirring on the body itself - well, that gives it texture, eye catching interest and shows the quality of the piece - there is a full 15 1/2" of it! The coat closes to the left with two self-fabric buttons.


Shoulders: 14"
Bust: 41"
Waist: 41"
Hips: 41"
Length: 45"

Condition: Very Good
There is a waterstain to the lining of the coat only, at the low center back. This is the only flaw that I can find to note. The coat looks just stunning, the silk is strong, and it has clearly been well stored and lightly worn. Held to sunlight, one can see some lifted fibers, but this is minor, and not visible except upon close inspection. A truly delightful, wearable piece.
