Beautiful black cotton velvet evening jacket from the 1920s or early 1930s.
A beautiful evening jacket, it has a ruched collar which can be worn lying flat or standing up and has a large black and red button. The sleeves have gorgeous shaping and it is fully lined with cream satin.
Not meant to be close fitting and will fit a 34"-36" bust best.
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Underarm sleeve length 18”
Good, and presents really well, but there are some points to note;
- there are some small holes and slight marks in the lining
- there are some areas of moth grazing where the nap of the velvet is missing. They are small, about 2mm x 8mm, and are mostly only visible on close inspection.
Even with the issues it is a beautiful piece.
