Show-stopping pale peach satin robe dating from the 1940s. This would have been enormously expensive at the time, not only for the luxurious fabric and intricate details, but also the amazing workmanship – even the inner seams are bound in satin. The robe has a lace insert at the waist and fastens at the waist with press studs covered by faux buttons. The sleeves are in a loose balloon style, gathered at the wrists with a flared cuff trimmed with a band of lace and fastening with a press stud. The robe has shoulder pads, and gathering at the waist, bodice, and shoulders.
Condition: good. There are numerous minor flaws – a scattering of tiny holes, small marks etc. Most of these are pictured, the worst of which are some rust-style marks near the waist – please note these are fainter than they appear in the photo! There is also a small fade near the hem, again quite faint. As you can see these faults not detract from the appearance of the robe as they are all very small, and it is structurally sound.
