Absolutely gorgeous vintage jacket from between 1915 to 1920. Made of super soft pink-peach silk satin with intricate embroidered dragons on the lapel and cuffs and silk tassels hanging from decorative covered buttons. Hangs open in front, there are no clasps or closures. It has a wide attached decorative belt in the back, dolman sleeves that taper to cuffs and one interior pocket. The jacket is padded with silk and fully lined in ivory silk satin. It is in very good condition for its age. There is some light fading down one sleeve, there is minor wear to some of the embroidery up around the neckline, there are a few light marks and a few areas of wear to the satin, the largest is about the size of a quarter and is situated on the back center just above the belt. These are shown in the last photo.
