Victorian Black silk Moire jacket, or coat. This would most likely date to the late 1890's into the early 20th century. And, for lovers of the Goth look, steam-punk or a unique fashion statement this is great. It is wearable, and quite sturdy considering it is over 100 years old.
Created with fine black silk moire...a gorgeous surface. I have never seen anything quite like this. It is unlined. The moire is medium weight and has a nice drape to it.
Sleeves have soft gathers at shoulders and taper towards wrist. It buttons up the front. High collar. The silhouette has the top portion fitting a bit closer to your form while falling to a slightly fuller form towards hem. This is the so called Princess cut.
The jacket or coat was hemmed originally, but in its life someone dropped the hem....so you see it as a longer jacket.
Buttons are self covered.
I love this piece.
PLEASE....always ask for help if needed with size. Thank you.
CONDITION: Overall very good condition. The former hemline can be seen if you look for it (the needle and thread leaves marks on the silk). We have tried to picture this. This is not visible unless you know to look for it. There are a some tiny holes in the body and slight wear at collars edge near back, again not readily noticeable. Also wear to the inside edge of collar...subtle, and will not show when worn. Our photos show most of these issues.
Our photos show exactly how the jacket will look. It is sturdy, clean, and very useable.
