1910's Edwardian Floral-Garden Silk Angel-Sleeve Boudoir Caftan Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Heaven on earth! With its wide angel-sleeves and breathtaking silhouette, this rare garment makes a memorable impression. The art-nouveau floral print is unbelievable; the brilliant colors cannot be matched today. It has the most flattering cut with exquisite details and the fine workmanship expected of the period. I particularly love the large pom-pom tassel trimmings. You can definitely use this piece for the boudoir but it can also be layered over other pieces for any summer event. The china-silk is practical weightless and the caftan-kimono style is strikingly modern. A rare piece of fashion history.

This antique dressing robe is in excellent wearable condition with no stains, discoloration or holes. After close inspection, I found some very minor tearing from age. The garment closed with hidden front snap-closures. This dress jacket is over 90 years old and is truly breathtaking!
