The coat is made of brocade with an overall boteh pattern on a pale mustard yellow ground. The front and arm openings are edged with gold ribbon and black silk fringe. Along every border is couched gold embroidery.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
