LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 2 - RESERVED FOR AMBIKA - Original Late 1930s Early 1940s Rust Cinnamon Crepe Blazer With Trapunto Beaded Leaf Decoration
RESERVED FOR AMBIKA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 of 2 - Due 1st November 2021
This beautiful blazer was made from cinnamon coloured crepe in the late 1930s / early 1940s. It truly is one of the most incredible pieces of tailoring we have ever handled. The jacket itself is cut in a classic hourglass silhouette with strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist albeit at a shorter length than most 1940s pieces. Four fabric covered buttons fasten it at the front. However the real highlight is the incredible detailing around the neckline and shoulders of this piece. Trapunto quilting and embroidery have been used to create highly embossed leaf shapes which have been further adorned with delicate star shaped sequins. Besides creating an incredibly flattering neckline, this detailing is simply show-stopping! Inside, the blazer is unlined and remarkably without maker’s labels.
Shoulders: 17” seam to seam
Length: 21 1/2” plus 1 1/2” hem
The blazer is in good condition, however there are some thread pulls, tiny holes, darns, a light spot and a slight colour inconsistency as pictured.
