Rare 1920s Cream Silk Embroidered Floral Duster Coat
This product is currently sold out.
Once in a while I find the most magical and beautiful vintage items.
This antique silk duster embroidered coat is true vintage dating from the 1920s. It features an all-over floral embroidery done by hand. The colors of the flowers are dreamy to say in the least, and just one look at this coat and you will be pulled into its beauty! The flowers are embroidered in silk threads of peach, lilac, pink, soft blue, and mauve.
The history of these coats are actually quite fascinating. They were made from antique canton Chinese shawls! The original owner would have a couturier or tailor custom make these coats out of an antique shawl. They are very rare and are like owning a work of art.
Size/Fit: Small or Medium
The shape of the coat is loose and straight fitting. It is lined in a beautiful striped damask silk. The lining is so beautiful it is almost as gorgeous as the coat!

Condition: Excellent condition for the item's age. There is a light water mark discoloration near the opening of the jacket (however not visible due to the location and embroidery over it).
