Bulgarian Lady's Embroidered Coat
From the seller:
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are pleased to offer this week,
a scarce antique c.1880`s ethnic Bulgarian ladies' folk costume dress from the Kjustendil region. Wonderful gold & silver metallic threads and colorful tones embroidery.
Condition: very good for its age with only few holes.
Measures: 44"length; waist 32"circumference (16" seam to seam) 15.5"from shoulder seam to shoulder seam; 20"armpit to armpit
The Bulgarian style was very similar to the Turkish still at this point. I just love the embroidery involved in these coats.
