1930s panne silk velvet floral jacket which retailed at the upmarket department store Dickins and Jones in London's Regent Street. It has a striking repeat floral print in cream, purple, cerise pink and green against a black background. The buttons are unusual and a 3-dimensional machined metal marvel; they remind me of a mini Wurlitzer platform! We particularly love the double corded rope belt that passes around the back of the jacket and then loops over the waistline button. The shoulder seams have a series of small gathers in two neat rows to create a low profile puffed sleeve and provide additional shaping. It is fully lined in a cream satin and the condition is truly excellent for something of its age.
Not immediately visible unless inspecting very closely; the velvet is speckled with some light coloured age related markings. They blend in so well with the print to the point that's it virtually impossible to notice that they aren't part of the print itself. It is possible to treat these markings if desired but we've genuinely left alone as they don't detract. Will fit up to a UK 10-12 or US 6-8 and sizes smaller.
