Black and Silver 1920s Assuit Jacket Size 8-10
Out of Stock
Truly spectacular vintage 1920s assuit jacket with hammered silver work creating the geometric pattern on a black tulle base. The jacket fastens at the front with six covered buttons and loops and has full length sleeves which are slightly puffed at the top.
These textiles, which were often turned into clothing were popular in the 1920s due to the Egyptian revival which followed the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922. This particular piece is an extraordinary example, in excellent condition with virtually no tarnishing or signs of repair. As the original silk lining had shattered, our restoration studio has relined in a contrasting pale blue silk lining which closely matched the original. Best fit for size small - extra small.
