1930s Silk Chiffon & Velvet Devore Coat

A truly spectacular early thirties silk chiffon evening coat that is shockingly warm. The exterior of the coat is a stunning black silk chiffon with a silvery grey and black cut velvet floral pattern applied. The velvet has a bit of a metallic feel to it and catches the light wonderfully. It has an attached big tie detail at the neck and other then that is just a cocoon style, throw on over anything wrap type piece. It is fully lined in taupe silk and the lining is in excellent condition. The hem has hidden weights to keep it in place and there is a layer of felt between the interior and exterior so its actually quite warm. It feel incredible to wear - really like layers of silk and coziness but looks so elegant and chic! This had to have been a high end piece in its day and its a tragedy that there is no label. It is in excellent condition and really a special piece you will treasure!

Shoulders: no defined seam
Sleeves: approx 24" with no defined shoulder seam
Bust: 21" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam and continuing to bottom hem
Total length: 43" from mid-back to bottom hem

The garment is fully lined in taupe silk and has no closures other than the attached tie at the neck. The inside is clean and the silk strong. There are no real flaws to note - but it s a garment that is nearing 100 years old and should be treated with love and care when worn and stored please. There is an extra lining of felt between the exterior and the silk making is surprisingly warm while still keeping it fluid and light weight. Weights are set in the hem so it hangs perfectly. Hand finished.
