1960s Unlabeled Densely Beaded & Sequined Red Velvet Caftan or Coat

This is an incredible, full length piece that can be worn as a coat or on its own as more of a caftan dress. This is the kind of piece that you only will find in the land of vintage. It is unlabeled but so unique and eye catching. The base is made out of a red cotton velvet and then onto that is a treasure trove of beads, sequins, faux pearls and gold thread detailing that cover the exterior. It has a very simple cut. When laid out flat it is a simple T shape. The sleeves are cut straight and wide and each curves up at the cuff. They are extensively detailed all around the cuffs as well. More of that gold thread and sequins run down the front and cover pretty much all of the velvet. This gives it the most incredible and dramatic feel. At the back the velvet is allowed to show more but it is also finished with more of the same glorious sequin and gold thread as the front. I photoed it laid out flat for you so you can see just how wonderful each side is. I love it. Excellent condition
