One of three superb hand made jackets we acquired in Los Angeles from a prominent Chinese estate. So much more striking and vibrant than the photos convey. Excellent unworn condition; the ground is a jet black silk charmeuse featuring platinum colored metallic piping at all the outer seams and braided buttons. The piece is expertly decorated with lotus blossoms and intricate and dimensional phoenixes composed of green and platinum colored metallic threads--the couching threads are antiqued gold, plum and red silk. The jacket is lined in a beautiful pink paper taffeta silk. Original Chinese label pictured here.
All of the pieces we acquired are completely hand sewn.
Measured buttoned up: Bust 35"; Waist 33"; Across the bottom 40" (slit on the sides and the rear). Sleeve 20" measured from the 13" collar' Length 23".
Condition: Excellent, pristine, unworn.
