A beautiful antique 19th century Turkish Ottoman jacket, it is a mens jacket but could be worn by men or women.
The jacket has been laboriously hand sewn, it has a silk thread weave on golden cream and red coral on a tough burlap backing.
The silk threads form a grand amalgamation of reds, purple, amber and gold.
It is adorned all over with gold metal thread with metal sequins trembleuse and large domed brass rivets, it has a mandarin style collar which fastens through the top and down the mid section with brass hook and loop fasteners.
It is fitted at the waist and flares out on the hips in traditional style, with traditional sleeves and shoulders which are covered with sequins and metal thread.
Shoulder to shoulder 16.5"
A incredible and wearable work of art.
It is in good condition, it has a few areas where the thread has run bare (see photos) and a few of the rivets are dented.
It has not been cleaned by us and will require cleaning prior to use as it exhibits some age related marks.
