This authentic antique velvet and embroidered jacket is circa 1890s, and in good antique *condition. The cropped jacket is a collectible antique, but is also wearable. The velvet is thick and rich, very soft to the touch, and features intricate lace applique & hand embroidered detailing. It features long lapels, bracelet length sleeves that flare open, and a belted waist with two hook closures. It looks like something straight out of the first season of Downton Abby! It was meant to be worn over many layers, and fitted over a corset, thus the shoulder and chest area are forgiving in size, but the belted waist when closed, is very small.
*The silk lining is a bit dry and has a few small rips, which could be easily repaired. These are unnoticeable when worn. There are a few minor areas of velvet that are rubbed thin around the shoulder area. We have made no repairs to this jacket, but small repairs could be made by a capable seamstress. This item should be handled with great care.
