1920s Silk, Velvet & Gold Flapper Coat

About

A drop dead gorgeous silk chiffon flapper coat with fused silk cut velvet applique in a soft pastel color throughout. The base fabric is a stunning pastel version of a coral that is backed in a pale ice pink - this gives the chiffon an extra layer of depth. Onto the chiffon is a stunning design of fused silk velvet applied to form pretty flowers that varies in how much was applied - heavier near the hem and on the collars and scattered prettily over the sleeves and upper portion. It is cut in a classic cocoon flapper shape. It closes low on the front with a fabric covered buttin that has a hook and eye hidden behind it, Inside there is an attached tie inside to secure. You can easily add a bit of a silk underneath and wear this as a dress as well! Each sleeve is cut kimono style with a wide wide hem that is edged in a 3" banding of metallic gold lace. The back is a work of art! A wide six inch panel of the same real metallic lace work falls in a column of gold til it reaches a point just under the torso of the wearer. The back hem mirrors this point and the fabric is gathered up and into the gold lace panel to create the most dramatic and stunning back detailing I have ever seen! It is an absolute work of art. Insanely rare and hard to find in this kind of color combination and workmanship. Excellent, musuem condition and a stunning heirloom quality find. Shoulders: no defined seams Bust: 28" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam and continuing to bottom hem Total length: 45" from mid-back at the neck to bottom of the back hem Fully lined in a pale pink silk. It ties inside and has a large hook and eye to close offset to the side as shown and has large velvet covered buttons set low on the front and the attached tie at the neck. The fabric is clean and strong. There are no overwhelming flaws to note. There is a small amount of shattering to the silk on the lining near one corner of the bottom front and a pinhole on the other side of the inside front but these do not show when worn and the lining is still strong enough for wear. Across the front on both sides are what look like water stains across the front - please super size the photos to view. It has been left as found as to not compromise the lining any further and is wearable as is. Other wise 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 through out. The hook under the button that closes the exterior looks to be newer and I suspect was replaced at some point recently. It should be dry cleaned using care by someone use to handling antique textiles 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. Modern size equivalent: XS-MED (2-12)
