Absolutely bewitching and decadent late 1880s / early 1890s Victorian silk cord jacket featuring an intricate, looping pattern, wide sleeves trimmed in sheer black silk and lovely bead ornament at the closure. Fully lined in a modern black satin, this stunning jacket works just as beautifully on a corseted figure with a bustle as it does over a modern sheer dress. Positively divine and in such wonderful condition -- this is a fully wearable and very special piece! Fully lined, hook & eye closure at front. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more details.

ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium; meant to flow over the body and was originally worn over a full dress, likely with a bustle.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. This jacket has been re-lined in a modern satin which is sturdy and ready to wear. There's some discoloration to the threading, as photographed, and some fabric loss to the wooden baubles at the closure. I've retacked some of the cording and addressed a bit of fraying at the collar. There's one area on the trim on the bottom right with some wear. Overall, this piece is impressively sturdy and ready to wear. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of silk cord, tissue silk, wooden baubles and lined in a satin polyester.
