Lady Drivers Stylised Golden Raw Silk Art Deco Duster Coat.
Purchased in 1923
High collar with a stiffened collar, and darting detail to the coat with gathered shoulder and sleeve seam.
The sleeves have a deep turn back cuff with chevron detailing and large patch pockets also with turn back detailing. The back is styled extremely generously to accommodate lightweight everyday clothing.
The coat is without a makers name or size label, so please kindly refer to the measurements given comparing them against a garment of your own.
The coat is in fabulous condition, it's been cut and styled to be worn over a suit or other outdoor clothes, reputedly once owned by one of the very first American Lady test drivers. Stunningly beautiful with an understated style and chic.
Not only is the silk completely hand woven, the coat has been hand stitched and finished, the work being of an exemplary high standard.
