Rare Mariano Fortuny Berry Silk Crepe Coat

About

This wonderful square cut berry silk crepe Fortuny coat is gilt stencilled in a Bellini pattern. Fortuny's ethereal crepe and gauze garments are extremely rare. The coat dates from the turn of the 20th Century.
Venetian glass beads and silk cord are used to decorate the fabric edges and closures. There is one closure at the chest and one near the knees. Beads are used to weight the seams at the slashed armholes.

As renown specialists in Fortuny, Vintage Luxury is always interested in acquiring the finest examples of Fortuny including entire collections.

Fortuny translated the caftan as a loose fitting outer garment, usually made out of silk velvet crepe or gauze the fitted back and open front allowed for elaborate stenciled decoration and venetian bead trim.

This knee length silk crepe wrap, based on antique ethnic caftan styles, is cut square with openings for the arms. A stenciled Fortuny garment has minimal cuts so that the garment can serve as a canvas for the art work.


The hand stenciling is done with real gold metallic pigments aged to a mellow, burnished color. Fortuny built his stenciled pieces layer upon layer, until he achieved the effect of an ancient brocade.



Excellent condition.
Hand signed in side seam.
