An absolutely excuisite Victorian mourning coat with dolman sleeves, adorned with velvet and real jet beads.

This decadent and rich inky black mourning piece is a museum worthy piece, so expertly put together from the finest of materials.

It is made from a very heavy thick ribbed silk bombazine which was a popular fabric for mourning wear of the period and particularly used in first mourning pieces, it has a short collar crafted in black lace, with tiny black jet bead detailing around the neckline.

It has a beautiful crushed silk velvet tassle fringing that adorns the collar the front closure and the fantastic dolman sleeves, the velvet tassles have round jet beads attached to them and it gives the fringing a lovely shimmer.

It has concealed button closure with satin covered buttons

It has a huge back pleat that lets out the coat for those fantastic skirts.

Fully lined in black taffeta, this is a most fine example of the Victorian mourning period and some of the wonderful garments produced.

Good condition overall, a small scratch (not tear) on the shoulder, some missing jet beads, some tears in the top back of the inner lining near the neck/shoulder area.

Very wearable, it is very heavy.

It is old and will require specialist cleaning only.

A beautiful piece and a rare opportunity to own an authentic museum worthy Victorian coat.

Labelled for Evans Richardson and Co, London Road, Liverpool.
