1960s Black Silk Brocade Maxi Coat

I know the pictures cannot come close to conveying the beauty of this coat. It is really extraordinary but being black, it is hard to capture just how wonderful it is. The cut is stunning - full length it has narrow shoulders and is fitted through the upper torso with long slim sleeves. It then flares from the waist ans sweeps to the ground with miles of fabric. The fabric itself is stunning - its has a self raised design that has an almost exotic skin quality to it - the raised bits have a slight sheen to them so you get a wonderful contrast. The inside is a marvel. Fully lined in thick, luxurious cream silk satin it is impeccably done. I love how the waist is slightly gathered. Its as beautiful as the outside. Finely made it is a true beauty! Excellent condition - it appears to have never been worn.

Shoulders: 16" from seam to seam
Bust: 17" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Length: 56" from mid neck at the back to bottom hem
Sleeves: 22" from shoulder seam to longest point

The coat is fully lined in an immaculate cream silk satin and closes with knotted fabric buttons and frog knot loops made of the exterior fabric. It has a good weight to it but is not unwieldy to wear.
