A dramatic and beautiful silk dress jacket - bold statement black coat with scarlet red dragon on the front and the back. Slit on the side, red lining and great stitching. Snap and cloth twisted silk closure. I would say this is a unisex fancy dress jack for special occasion and suitable for ladies and gents. IMHO great with jeans and a tank top too. Can be worn as an overcoat or jacket with pants or skirt in place of a tuxedo for a bold statement. Made of 65% silk and 35% polyester and sized as an XL. Great selection of Vintage Clothes and some beautiful Mid Century Jewelry or Vintage Mexican Jewelry to go with them!
CONDITION: I like new used without any issues I've noted. As with all used items, please expect the normal wear that is the hallmark and authentication or preowned vintage and antique clothing. Color may vary based on lighting and computer
SIZE APPROX: 27 inches shoulder seam to shoulder seam, 19 inches underarm to underarm, 27 inches long.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
