Very Good Vintage condition.
There is overall fading to the fabric, mostly noticeable in covered areas - such as under the collar and the inside front placket - although much more subtle elsewhere. The high sheen of the fabric goes a long way in disguising this. Silk brocade is susceptible to fade over the years, although the fibre remains strong. There are no other faults that I can see.
Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws will be highlighted here.
A rare and beautiful coat, that can be worn over a dress, pants or silk trousers. The styling on this piece is out of this world and the fabric has a rich lustre. It really is of museum quality.
