1950s Vintage Red Silk Satin Chinese Jacket with Outstanding Embroidery Sz S

This gorgeous red jacket ins silk satin appears to be from the 1950s. The satin is a great weight, and while the jacket has the classic mandarin collar, straight cut and Hong Kong style frogs, I do think it was in Hong Kong made for the Western export market as the metallic braids is not typical for the style. The embroidery is beautiful and fine. There are waves at the hem, and pheasants in trees, plus flowers scattered throughout. The lining is red silk habotai. There are only three frogs at the front closure, so you will need to wear something under this!

Label: none

Size: Bust: 38”, Waist: 36” Hem: 36”, Shoulders: 15”, Sleeves: Neck to hem: 25”, CB Neck to Hem: 26.5”

Condition: Excellent, no stains or holes.
