Medium Asian Jacket - Reversible Scarlet Red & Yellow Satin Brocade - Eastern 50s Evening Jacket - 1950s Formal Cocktail Chic - Bust 39

$ 95.00

A beautiful Asian jacket in raspberry scarlet satin brocade! This late 1950s cocktail jacket has a molded neckline and unfitted bracelet-length sleeves, with frog closures, stippled borders and two waist pockets with notched side hems. Late 50s to early 60s. This beautiful red evening jacket was originally reversible, made with light padding between the two satin layers. It could be worn on its reverse side now, though there are stains (as photographed). The raspberry red satin side is very wearable.
