1900 Evening Coat

1900 Evening Coat
Made of pearl-grey silk damask, figured with a Chinese motif and trimmed with pink silk frills, each frill edged with black velvet baby-ribbon. The wide sleeves and loose duster style of this coat point to the early 20th century, and it would have been worn over an evening gown. It is lined throughout with pink quilted silk, and fastens down the front with hidden large mother of pearl buttons.
