Stunning and sumptuous is the only way to describe this amazing early 1920's rich silk velvet opera coat. This beauty is made from a superior quality silk velvet in an inky black shade, it is so soft to touch, fully lined in ivory silk with ruched cuffs, a single woven satin covered button fastening and a huge oversized off white mink collar. It has a very long v neckline which is offset beautifully by the large super soft white collar.
It is rich and decadent, very well made by Slattery and Co, Boston, it still retains its original label. Slattery was a very high end clothing store in Boston in the 19th and 20th century founded in 1867. There is some small pitting on some areas of the velvet but this does not detract from the coat at all.The silk lining within the sleeves has torn, only in the sleeves though and this cannot be seen from the outside, there have been some repairs on the seams under the arms but this is not noticeable and has been done professionally. There are no size labels. Length shoulder to hem: 45.
