1920's Black Flapper Coat. Silk Velvet Opera Coat with Cape Sleeves and Bottom Ruffle. Great Gatsby Flapper Roaring 20's


This is an authentic 1920's black opera coat, made of silk velvet with contrasting full length lapels. Lapels and lining are probably a Georgette fabric (heavy crepe like). Lower portion or Hem is accented with a 6 1/2" velvet ruffle. Coat is lightweight and meant to be worn over an evening gown back in the roaring 20's. This black beauty features a large back ribbon bow detail and a unique cape top. The sleeve portion is actually part of the top cape which gracefully drapes to the coat beneath. I purchased this from the daughter of the original owner who had treasured it as a family heirloom for all these years. Please refer to measurements listed below for size information.

CONDITION: Very Good. No tears, stains or obvious signs of wear. This piece has been lovingly stored and cared for. Slight crush marks on back of coat from storing. Could easily be steamed out.

Armpit to Armpit: 18 1/2" seam to seam (flat lay)
Top of shoulder to top of shoulder: 13 1/2" (measured on inside lining since it is a cape top
on exterior)
Coat Length: 44"
Cape Portion Length: 21 1/2"
Bow Detail: 3 1/2" W x 23" L

I strive to bring you the very best in vintage and welcome any questions that you may have.
