Magnificent Ceremonial Silk Robe, C. 1940, Elaborate Adornment

I bought this years ago through DuMouchelles Gallery thinking that it would be so elegant to wear it as a hostess gown when we entertained. But I never wore it, worrying that I might spill something or hurt it in some way. So I have loved looking at it from time to time, and appreciating the workmanship and beauty. I had thought it would be a fabulous wall-hanging, but I always had so much artwork that there wasn't enough empty wall space. The photos do not do this justice. The Phoenix Birds, the Clouds, the exquisite work on the hem and the sleeves, and the perfectly tied knots that snugly fit into their loops all come together for a robe so beautiful that it is real;y a work of art. Width 48 inch Spread, Length 43 inches. Condition: Excellent.

Item ID: A4580
