1930s Vintage Smoking Jacket Woven Metallic Mens Size L


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a fabulous vintage smoking jacket or short lounging robe featuring a metallic pattern in gold with touches of red against a black background.  The fabric is quite wonderful and I think dates to the art deco era.  It features deer, parrots and foxes amidst flora and foliate.  I’m unsure of its origin but I think that I’ve seen Persian fabric that looked like this, although it could be of other origin.  This vintage smoking jacket has a shawl collar, and closes and cinches at the waist with a matching sash belt.  It has a chest pocket and patch pocket at either side.  The chest pocket is embroidered with the initials “P.J”.

Age: 1930s, maybe 1940s

Condition: It is in excellent condition with the exception of a small wear spot at the lower left front, near the opening  (see last close-up photo).  Otherwise, no other other wear, tear, soiling, staining or odour - this vintage smoking jacket has been very well cared for over the last 80+ years.

Striking fabric, very rich looking - this vintage smoking jacket is really an exceptional example of what men would wear while relaxing at home!
