~ Antique Velvet Costume Theater Jacket ~
Shabby French Nordic display! This little stunner is a very old and timeworn 1800's theater jacket in red velvet. Intricate gold metal threading and embroidery... gorgeous creamy antique lace at collar and cuffs. This jacket was originally purchased to repurpose the lace and embroidery into other projects. I just could not bring myself to dismantle this beautiful costume piece. Condition: It has come unsewn at shoulders and some of the edging is coming apart. Does have some tears and fraying... Can be used "as is" to display in your collection, or use for salvage to create something with exquisite lace and fabric from days gone by (assuming you can stand to take it apart!). Please look over photos carefully for overall condition... Price reflects the current antique condition of this piece. Approx. a child's size 6. SHIPS INSURED!
