1920's Velvet Coat

From the seller:

Vintage French Page Couture Silk Velvet Metallic Bronze Gold Lame Opera Coat c. 1922

An art deco gold silk velvet opera coat with shirred collar and sleeves very similar to one we sold that had shirring with rows of hand applied dazzling rhinestones (sold for $1600 at our Salon).

Yellow silk lining has disintegrated unfortunately, but can be replaced by a skilled seamstress. Fits and drapes majestically. No closures. A well made vintage piece that will have an excellent investment outlook once the lining is restored. Exterior is exellent with only a small 1/2 inch spot on the left sleeve that is non-significant.

Coat is very clean and has no odors.

Label: Arnold Constable & Co. Fifth Avenue, New York

WIll fit up to size 4 comfortably. Petite.


Shoulders: 15.5 inches

Sleeves: 22 inches

Bust: 40 inches (open)

Waist: 44 inches (open)

Hips: free

Front Length: 44 inches

From Me:

If you look at the picture of the back, this is so very much a 1920's coat. I like the shirred collar and sleeves. This would actually go well with the gown I just posted...hmmm...
