What a precious thing! This beautiful antique baby coat is made of smooth, plain rayon enriched with embroidery on the front.

The lace-trimmed peter pan collar is also embroidered and has delicate faggoted trim. There are three mother-of-pearl buttons at the neck, but the coat actually fastens with snaps. It is lined with heavy satin, and interlined with flannel so baby doesn't get a chill.

Bright off-white in color, the coat has some small holes and stains, but they hardly detract from the really beautiful craftsmanship on this lovely garment.

Made of rayon or rayon/acetate
Measures about 13.5 inches wide at underarm; 17 inches long
Condition: The worst spot is the back left side with cluster of holes on a light yellow area; there are also a few small holes at the left underarm, neck and collar; also light stains on the lace edging and a few scattered smudges (please see last two photos). Despite these things, overall it displays quite well.


Please be sure to read shop announcement in case there may be a shipping delay.
