Absolutely stunning early 20's Chinese silk padded jacket.
Bright blue silk hand embroidered with koi carp and foliage, it has inky black satin detailing including the traditional Chinese mandarin collar, the front fastening and under the arms.
It fastens with covered buttons in traditional loop fittings.
There is incredibly detailed piping across the seams and the cuffs are deeply edged in soft dusky pink silk which is heavily embroidered detailing featuring butterflies and flowers.
It is a traditional crossover style jacket and is also heavily padded but remains very lightweight.
The lining is a pink burlap type fabric.
There has been a repair to the underside of the sleeve, it is not noticeable but has tucked one of the loops under and this would need unpicking to release.
There is some very slight fade on the cuffs, the lining inside shows some staining at the bottom which appears to be water marking of sorts.
It is unlabelled, I have provided some measurements below but if you require any further information please do get in touch.
Total length 33.5"
Shoulder to shoulder 19"
