Item Antique Ottoman silk jacket from Turkey or Greece Dimensions Measurements taken with article laying flat
Wingspan: 57" cuff to cuff
Across front: 18.5"
Length: 15.5" Condition Good Condition - no holes, but overall wear to the fabric design; faint spotting Description This listing is for an antique Ottoman handmade ethnic jacket from the Balkan region. Such garments were worn throughout the Ottoman empire, but I believe this one originates from Turkey or Greece. Made of lovely floral silk fabric with peach color lining (possibly newer). The woven pattern is somewhat worn down on the fabric, especially around the underarms and shoulder area. There are some small stains. Fastens with two metal buttons on the front. Dates to the end of the 19th century. Scarce. A note regarding condition: All of the costumes and textiles that I sell are vintage and have typically seen decades of use resulting in expected wear and tear that add to the history and authenticity of each piece. In case of above average wear, I try to list any significant damages and heavy signs of use in the above description. Depending on the age, materials, and condition, I will often hand-wash more durable, colorfast cotton and linen elements, but embellished garments, heavier wool pieces or items made from silk or fine fabrics are sold in the original, unwashed condition. Small holes or stains, missing sequins/beads, worn trim, and other marks related to standard wear are common and do not detract from the value of most pieces. Please keep in mind that a vintage textile or garment in very good condition might still show signs of use, storage and age. Unless otherwise noted, all of the items listed for sale are in very good, stable condition and are suitable for use, wear or display.
