Opulent fringe scallops the bottom of this FLAPPER silk jacket. Measuring 13″ long, they are individually knotted and perfectly positioned to create a rhythmic scalloped hem. The length of the jacket makes it dramatic. The sway of the fringe makes it romantic.
In silk chiffon, the fabric is pink. It measures 15″ across the shoulders. The bust is 38″. The jacket has a straight linear silhouette with a 42″ waist and a 46″ hip. The sleeve is 17″ from armhole to cuff. The model is small and slender.
Almost 100 years old, the piece shows minor aging. The fabric has yellowed a little and there are small holes at the neckline. The fringe which is the artistic jewel of the piece shows no wear. As to be expected with a piece from this era, some gentle work may need to be done to bring it back to its full glory.
Very good condition.
