About

Extremely stylized Art-Deco coat which could easily be a Wiener Werkstatte made for export. Rich polychrome glossy rayon crochet in shades of gray, blue & ivory created to resemble artistic fish scales. The metallic-gold thread accents really make this garment sparkle. A labor intensive piece like this would have been very high-quality at the time. The effortless shape makes this a timeless classic. An exceptional piece of 1920's wearable art!
