1920s Vintage Stunning Black Silk Pongee Robe Housecoat
Antique early 20th century silk pongee robe in a vibrant, bold yellow floral print on tissue thin black silk, with flashes of orange and grey. It is a rare and wonderful bohemian beauty. The front pocket is a curved triangle shape which I adore. It is a wee bit wounded so please look at all images and ask me any questions.
That print though! It's just gorgeous.
- 20s Japanese black sheer silk
- Yellow and orange flowers on black
- 1 front pocket
Measures laid flat - pictured on a 36" bust mani:
- 38" chest
- 15" across shoulders
- 21" sleeve length
- 42" length
- Good wearable condition, but is is wounded with a few holes and a repair. Missing belt. Please examine all images. The most notable and lareger holes are on the back of neck and the repair near lapel. The other holes are smaller moth munches, those I sisn't even notice until I held it up to the light. There are also a few stitches loose on an armhole.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing

If they're likely to have attracted a moth then they go straight in the freezer for a few days to kill eggs, this is especially so with fur.
