1890s Orange Embroidered Quilted Silk Robe, Size-Large
Stunning Japanese import robe in a bright orange tissue silk embroidered in white and pale pink flowers and dating to the 1890s. The robe is quilted with heavy batting in-between the layers. The robe has a spread collar and frog closures down the front. Large patch pockets on the front hips. Long, set in sleeves are cut with a curve and have wide cuffs at the wrists. Rope sash belt has tassel ends. The robe is lined in the same silk. The robe came direct from the family and has never been shown in today's market.
Condition: For its age and delicacy, it's in amazing condition! There is one 3/4" rubbed spot in the silk showing a little of the batting. Small areas of minor discoloration. There is a nickel size dark spot on the lower right side hemline showing a bit of the batting. 4 tiny dots on the back center hemline. I think that's it.
