1920s Velvet Fringe Flapper Duster Coat

Amazing cut velvet on silk chiffon done in a gorgeous art deco design. The base fabric has red, green and blue, shot through with golds woven into a brown silk chiffon base. The velvet is applied on top and cut in sharp geometric shapes - this allows bits of the color under to show through. It is cut typical flapper style with a cocoon like shape. It closes low on the front with large velvet covered buttons and there is an attached tie at the neck that you can style dozens of ways. The fringe is very long and in excellent condition. There is one bit missing on one side - please see the picture. Each sleeve has a silk insert that I think was added but I am leaving as it works. You could wear this as a dress with something under it! Great condition.

Shoulders: 14" across
Sleeves: 23" long
Bust: 20" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam and continuing to bottom hem
Total length: 47" from mid-back at the neck to bottom of fringing

Unlined in taupe silk and has large velvet covered buttons set low on the front and the attached tie at the neck. The fabric is clean and strong. There are no real flaws to note other that one area of fringe that is cut - please see the attached picture of the area - it is on the side so does not detract when worn.- other wise the condition is excellent but is a garment that is nearing 100 years old and should be treated with love and care when worn and stored please. Hand finished

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.
