1920s Lame Brocade Velvet Flapper Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Exceptional late twenties flapper coat made of a lame silk brocade combined with a stunning pale yellow velvet. If that was not enough the collar and cuffs are accented with snow white ermine!The body of the coat is a textured almost 3D fabric with large Asian feel medallions woven into the silk base, Those medallions are formed form real gold metallic lame thread. The upper portion of the coat has soft, rounded seamless shoulders and they curve gracefully to the ermine cuffs. The collar is high and also detailed with ermine and under that are three huge knotted loops that each end with over-sized fabric covered buttons! Amazing! Inside the coat has been hand lined with a blush pink silk. I huge and wonderful pocket adorned with pretty silk ribbons on each side sits prettily at an angle. The coat is labeled Ogden gowns which leads me to believe that this was once part of a set - I can only wistfully imagine the matching gown that went with it. Extraordinarily rare and in museum quality. A stunning heirloom quality find.

Shoulders: no defined seams
Sleeves: approz 20" long
Bust: 22" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
The coat widens as it reaches the bottom hem so waist and hips are open
Total length: 39" from mid-back at the neck to bottom of fringing

Fully lined in blush pink silk. It has hidden hook and eye along the front edges and those large velvet loops and brocade covered buttons at the neck. The fabric is wonderfully clean and strong. There are no real flaws to note other a tiny bit of shattering to the silk at the inside neck above the label and another area on the lining under one loop - neither of these show when the coat is work and the fabric is still strong and wearable. The exterior has no flaws to note and the condition is excellent but is a garment that is nearing 100 years old and should be treated with love and care when worn and stored please. Hand finished throughout. It should be dry cleaned using care when cleaned again in the future.

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
