For the last post on Saint Patrick's Day

From the seller:

A magnificent 1890-1900 black net lace and green silk opera evening coat that has been de-accessioned from a major NY City museum collection. The coat has a wide shawl collar with a stand up back collar. The collar is made of green silk and trimmed with black silk floral appliqués. The coat has a ruffled front and is trimmed with appliqués on the back waist. There is a black satin ribbon tie that inserts from each side of the waist and a silk tie on the inside waist. The coat is in very good and sturdy condition. There is a repair on one sleeve and a few scattered breaks in the net lace on the front ruffles. A very stunning display coat. Bust 34 Waist 28 Front length 52 Back length 59.

From Me:

As always, please mop up the drool on your way out! ;-) Thanks!
