Another Cute Early Edwardian Morning Coat
Not really much can be added , the pictures say it all.
This is a spectacular rich ,opulent edwardian wool coat with
an unbelievable amount of lace appliques.
The coat has a A-line cut, huge full cut bishops sleeves
and a large collar.
The collar is covered in wonderful lace and is edged in
very, very fine pleated chiffon.
The coat is lined in rich creamy silk satin, edged with
silver braided trim, both front edge and cuffs.
On inside front lining there is more lace and this
lace has been filled with pink tiny cotton tuffs
giving it a three dimensional look.
This auction is for the COAT only.
This is a true piece of fashion history,Should really be in a fashion

a few tiny,bites holes and the coat has several smudges
It needs cleaning by a specialist.

All the lace is in excellent condition.
The major difference between this one and the one I posted a few minutes prior? About $2,500. Yes, this one is in much better condition and OMG look at that lace on the inside but that's really about it. Same time period, same styling.
