"Wild Cranes" Vintage 1920's Lamé Embroidered Tulle Jacket UK 8-10 US 4-6


This breathtaking 1920's black tulle jacket, embellished with trailing gold lamé chain stitches and an embroidered design of cranes surrounded by flora and fauna in muted palettes of coral, pink, orange, yellow, blue and green, is a rare piece to behold. 

The open neckline of the jacket is accented by back silk satin panels. The simple shoulder line, sets off the 3/4 length pointed bell sleeves, edged with black silk satin along the cuffs. The longline cut of the jacket is set off by the picturesque embroidery, that trails along the lengths of the front and back of the jacket. The eye-catching hemline, in black satin silk, boasts a pointed edge that joins the tulle base, mimicking the pointed details along the cuffs, and completing this piece in true Art Deco Design. This piece has been lovingly restored and brought back to life.
