Vintage 40s Silk Dress Gown from the estate of Erika Wackenroder Olson. Erika was a model and clothing designer from Berlin who came to U.S. in 1931. I have a few other items of hers offered in separate listings. See last image for picture of her.

This lovely dressing gown is silk in a dark red and gray print. The dress has 3/4 length sleeves shirred over elbow to sleeve edge. Gown has rolled collar and buttons to waist with metal zipper continuing from waist part way down the front of the extra full bias cut flowing skirt. Dressing gown is slightly longer in back than front. Same fabric belt finishes off the garment.
