1920s Silk Fringe Dressing Gown or Evening Coat

This robe was carefully stored and it shows as it is still in extraordinary condition! The fabric is strong and wearable and it is a high end, excellently constructed garment. This amazing robe is made of a beautiful and fine black silk. It has stunning  hand knotted fringing detail in a high contrast gold silk cording that runs all around the lower hem and each sleeve. The movement that this creates when you move is fantastic! It crosses to close at the hip and ties in place and there is a darling fabric rosette that sits above the tie. Though this would have originally been meant for the boudoir, it can be mixed into a modern day girl's wardrobe quite easily and even used as a light evening coat or wear it as a dress with a slip underneath. These are getting harder and harder to find and even more so in this fine a condition! Excellent, museum quality condition

The robe is unlined and ties to close with one tie inside and another set of ties on the exterior. It is in what I would consider excellent shape with no apparent flaws. Please remember that pieces of this age will have a natural patina and should not be expected to be absolutely perfect (though this is close)! It is after all almost 100 years old!

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
