This beautiful 1930's cream silk jacket, accented by delicate trailing canton floral embroidery, is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
The V shaped neckline is framed by a soft Peter Pan collar accented by floral embroidery. The simple shoulder line sets off the full length sleeves, which are in turn embroidered with trailing flowers in cream silk thread. The simple straight line cut of the jacket is accented by large pearlised buttons, that conceal press stud fastenings. Finished with floral embroidery along the front and back of the jacket, this beautiful piece showcases the craftsmanship of the 1930's. We believe this piece may have been a 1920's silk piano shawl, which in time has been modified and made into a jacket.
