1920s B & W Embroidered Silk Jacket

Stunning and unusual this is a late 20s, early 30s silk embroidered Asian jacket that would have been made specifically for the tourist market. It is very unusual in that it is all black stitch - normally you see these in a myriad of colors and to find a black stitch one is pretty amazing! Machine stitched embroidery covers the jacket in a design of beautiful birds that flit amongst black flowers and vines. Both the outside and inner lining are a slightly off-white tissue silk that is very light weight. It is in excellent shape and looks to have been worn little. Wonderful, rare and unusual piece.
