Purple Velvet Edwardian Coat
Edwardian- Turn of the Century Cloak or Robe
* Deep Royal Purple Velvet
* Cream Silk Lining
* Has been professionally cleaned. Free of must and dust.
22" Arm length
* Round Elizabethan Collar, secured to the side with a large button
* Tapered Dolman sleeves
* Floor Length
* Needs some repairs; The bottom hem has fallen out in an area. There is a hole on the left arm, the right has a small repair. There are a couple small tears around the collar, and part of the lining is torn near the collar. Please see last 4 photos.
Other than these repairs, this piece is sound and gorgeous!
I love all the Edwardian coats I've been able to find lately. Based on the waistline, my guess is this is pretty close to what would have been worn on the Titanic.
