Absolutely rich silver ,pewter and black silk taffeta home dress

or most likely a robe. I really do not know exactly how old this

robe is. It is fairly heavy, do to it being totally lined in

this soft patterned cotton/felt lined material,that keeps the

whole robe together.

Front part has black and grey floor length shawl

collar that is belted in same material.

Sleeves cut very full,hem is edged in black cotton


Please note fun red stitching on inside
