Gorgeous black silk velvet clutch evening wrap from the late 1920's. Deep black silk velvet, collarless. The wrap is just meant to drape on the shoulders. Huge Black velvet flower on the right side of the lapel. Delicate hand done smocking along the shoulder and front edges. No label or maker, looks completely handmade.

Measures 32 inches long and 17 inches across the shoulder area when sitting on the form, but really has no specific size and would be considered a 'one size fits most' garment.

Condition is very good. the exterior velvet is unbelievable! No scorch marks or inclusions. a couple of loose threads along the collar but nothing major. The lining which is an ivory silk/satin variety, needs to be replaced. The fabric is shattered. The previous owner had tried to repair it, but never got past one small patch. The flower on the lapel is a little droopy, it is pinned open in the photo.

This came from a collection of a fashion historian, she carefully tagged all of her pieces with as much information as she knew. I left the tag attached, I think it's a nice touch. She had dated it 1926-1931.
