Vintage 30s black satin brocade vest with low cut lapels is lined in rayon satin and has a silk satin back. The pattern of the brocade-- wavy vertical lines and abstract leaf shapes—is wonderfully reminiscent of the neckties of the period. The vest closes with four shell inlay stud-style silvertone buttons.
There are four pockets, two of them 3.5" wide and two of the 4.5" wide, all of them cotton lined; the martingale in back is faced in the same cotton for sturdiness. Both the lapels and the pockets are satin-piped for added visual interest.
Measurements are: Chest 35", waist 32", length in front 22.5", and length in back 19.5". Excellent, scarcely if ever worn condition. A museum deaccession, this has a paper inventory tag attached.
