Wonderful 1930s silk Asian Chinese coat - jacket with gold and silver bullion embroidery in size medium. Exquisite piece!
Measurements in inches: bust 36, waist 38, hip 40, sleeve from center back to cuff 24 and length from center back to hem is 41 inches. This is meant to be worn loose. It flares gently, from bust to hem. The sleeves are cut as one with the body of the coat. They are wide and generous.
Lightweight, midnight black silk is lavishly embroidered with gold and silver bullion thread. The designs are traditional Chinese motifs that likely represent, waves or mountains, flowers, birds and then some straight solid lines that are very ART DECO.
There is embroidery on the abbreviated Mandarin collar. Collar, front opening, sleeve cuff and hem are trimmed with razor thin white silk piping.
The frog closures are also made with this very narrow piping. Part of the frog closure at the neckline is missing.
One piece, lightweight jacket has side slits. It is FULLY lined in sheer black tissue silk. The LAST picture shows the coat turned inside out so you can see the lining is MINT. It is beautifully constructed with lots of hand finish work.
There is WEAR to one side of the embroidery at one slit. I don't think this is from being worn or abused, but rather from laying stored, on the other side of the embroidery. Otherwise minty condition.
Beautiful coat! Wonderful silk with no damage or stains. No odor or weak seams. Thank you for carefully reading the full description
