1920s Silk, Velvet & Gold Flapper Coat
A drop dead gorgeous silk chiffon flapper coat with fused silk cut velvet applique in a soft pastel color throughout. The base fabric is a stunning pastel version of a coral that is backed in a pale ice pink - this gives the chiffon an extra layer of depth. Onto the chiffon is a stunning design of fused silk velvet applied to form pretty flowers that varies in how much was applied - heavier near the hem and on the collars and scattered prettily over the sleeves and upper portion. It is cut in a classic cocoon flapper shape. It closes low on the front with a fabric covered buttin that has a hook and eye hidden behind it, Inside there is an attached tie inside to secure. You can easily add a bit of a silk underneath and wear this as a dress as well! Each sleeve is cut kimono style with a wide wide hem that is edged in a 3" banding of metallic gold lace. The back is a work of art! A wide six inch panel of the same real metallic lace work falls in a column of gold til it reaches a point just under the torso of the wearer. The back hem mirrors this point and the fabric is gathered up and into the gold lace panel to create the most dramatic and stunning back detailing I have ever seen! It is an absolute work of art. Insanely rare and hard to find in this kind of color combination and workmanship. Excellent, musuem condition and a stunning heirloom quality find. Item# C159
