This sensational custom-made Edwardian couture coat, dating back to 1906, is lavishly fashioned with vining floral patterned Battenburg lace. .The highly stylized handwork perfectly captures the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Ethereal ivory-white is the base color for this breathtaking treasure; a regal patina which will add pizazz to any modern ensemble. I love the pleated silk-chiffon trimming and dramatic angel bell-sleeves. Closes with gorgeous tasseled macramé cording. Such a sumptuous presentation with it's grand free-sweep silhouette. This magnificent antique coat resonates powerfully today, not only because of its intrinsic beauty, but also because it is an important aesthetic artifact of the 1910's period.
