1950s Rich Metallic Silk Brocade Coat

The fabric on this coat is amazing!† A luxe combination of gold in different tones and textures, has dramatic accents of a rich coral mixed in. Little pops of silver threads and glossy black finish. The cut is very structural and the weight of the fabric keeps it that way. It is not so heavy that it is unwieldy but it of a weight that when on the shape you see is held perfectly. Each sleeve is cut just above the wrist and they are on the wider side. The only closure is at the neck so anything underneath will peep out. It is just spectacular and the simplicity of the cut only further highlights the drama of that rich, bold fabric. Very couture in feel but sadly it has no labels! Excellent condition

Shoulders: 15.5"
Sleeves: 18"
Bust: 22" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 22" flat across the back from side to side
Hips: 23" flat across the back from side to side
Length: 40" from neck to hem

Fully lined in black silky rayon and it closes with hidden fabric snaps at the neck. The flat bow at the neck is just tacked on and could be removed for an even cleaner look. Perhaps the very occasional broken metal thread but I am being pretty picky.
