1920s Teal Blue Silk Velvet Ruffle Jacket

Finding amazing pieces form the 1920s is getting harder and harder as time passes but this is a true treasure! I think it might be one of the best silk velvet pieces I have come across! The color is exceptional - it is a pretty sea teal and because of the fabric you get that wonderful silverish cast to it as it catches the light. The cut is exquisite - it gathers in at the waist with three elastic bands worked into the velvet and set so soft pleats are created. The hip flares slightly out from under that. The collar is ruffled down the front in a soft gather of velvet creating a charming frame. Each sleeve is gathered up and under at its hem so you get this fabulous poufed effect. The perfect finishing detail is the three large carved buttons that appear to be apple juice bakelite.or a celluloid. Very beautiful and in excellent condition.

Fully lined in a light cotton dyed to match. Closes with the buttons as shown.
