1890's Victorian Antique Tiffany-Blue Applique Wool Bell-Sleeve Cropped Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This breathtaking custom-made Victorian cropped jacket dates back to the 1890's. It is lavishly embellished with the finest ivory lace floral motifs and fringe applique. I adore the winged bell-sleeves and asymmetric front closure. The layered backside almost creates a unique star shape and the effect is truly astonishing. The tiffany-blue color perfectly captures the Art Nouveau aesthetic, then at a peak of popularity. Such a sumptuous presentation and a grand avant-garden silhouette. This is an extraordinary example of Victorian beauty and special find for the serious collector.

This antique jacket is in excellent wearable condition with no stains and discoloration. The garment is hand-stitched and fully-lined in satin. Only signs of age are fraying silk trim and a few tiny holes which are not noticeable when worn. This piece is over 100 years old and is truly breathtaking!
