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


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. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Sleeve Length:18 inches Front Length:28 inches 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!
