Gorgeous silk coat circa 1914. And how beautiful that it is inspired by the "fluid" lines of Paul Poiret!

This is made of black ribbed/cord silk with a pure silk neckline detail. This is unlined.

This loose fitting cocoon coat features long raglan sleeves finished with wide round cornered turn-back cuffs. The collar is detailed with a pin pleated silk adornment.

The front fastens over to the side with an attractive cord braided ornament over a handsome brass and silk crepe shank button.

A very beautiful piece of history in wearable condition :)

MINT: An item is as perfect and pristine as when it was originally made and shows no sign of wear (mint condition is rare for vintage clothing).

NEAR MINT: An item shows only the slightest signs of wear.

EXCELLENT: An item shows typical signs of wear due to occasional use.

VERY GOOD: An item is considered wearable but has some surface flaws (staining or soiling, for example).

Items are sent to you in a ready to wear condition. "Estate fresh" garments are never in ready to wear condition so that means we take the extra time/care to either carefully launder and iron our items, steam, press or have them dry cleaned before sending.
The only garments that we do not clean are deadstock/new old stock garments that have not been worn. Collectors prefer these in "Estate fresh" condition. However, if you purchase a deadstock item from us and would prefer it cleaned before sending out, just let us know. There is no charge for this...just request this.
We NEVER use items such as Febreeze or Dryel as those are not cleaning agents. They are only used to mask odors and will leave dirt and residue in your vintage garment.
