Edwardian Highly Detailed Silk Coat
This is a beautiful, early silk coat. I am guessing turn of the century though this is a touch outside my area of expertise so feedback is always welcome! What I do know is that is is stunning and still extremely wearable and shockingly modern still. The exterior is a luxurious black, weighty silk matte satin. It ties at the neck under a fine short pelted fur collar that has a moleskin or chinchilla feel to it. The cut is very simple except for the stunning 3D cord work and stitching detail. This runs down each sleeve and the cord work forms scrolls and filigree. Each bottom sleeve has a puffed inset of perfect tiny flat pleats - amazing. These older pieces always seem to have hidden work done for the sake of the doing it properly rather for show and this is no exception. The good 4 inch scroll work design runs down the inside of each front panel - only really showing when the tie is down up at the neck and the edges then flip out! It has a soft wool lining between the exterior and the inner silk lining so it is surprisingly warm despite its lightness. This would have been a very finely made piece in its time! Excellent condition though please do read the notes concerning the lining below.
