Vintage Chinese Silk Robe Hand Embroidered Floral Motifs

$375.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a gorgeous vintage Chinese silk robe.  This vintage Chinese silk robe features hand embroidered floral motifs in tones of red, pink, green, blue, purple, violet and brown against a gold toned yellow background - the sleeve cuffs, neckline trim and bottom open edges are white.  It closes with five black frogs with buttons and cloth loops.  It is lined in a similarly coloured fine silk.

Age:  Difficult to say for sure, but this vintage Chinese silk robe came from the estate of a couple who travelled to China during the 1950s and 60s, so it is at least that old, but may have been old when purchased.

Sizing:  There is, of course, no size label, and although this should fit a range of medium sizes, please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into account:

Neck:  14 1/2” - 15”

Shoulders and sleeves: 49” across the top

Sleeve Inseam: 14”

Bust: 42” around

Waist: 45” around

Overall Length: 42”, taken at the back from the top of the neck to the hemline

Condition:  This vintage Chinese silk robe is in excellent condition with no wear, tears, marking or stains. The robe had been in storage for many years and, although I have aired it, may need further airing. 

This is a beautiful vintage Chinese silk robe that would make a lovely wall display - large amount of hand work on this robe!
