Velvet costume jacket
Decadent, distressed, carnivalesque velvet bolero jacket. Light-catching tea-rose, black, gold, pink, red, lilac, navy & café-au-lait velvet strips, pieced together in an art-deco motif. Possibly a Twenties'-inspired costume from the 1950 's, or an example of vintage Vaudeville? Fully-lined in leopard-print flannel. Pointed shawl collar -- elbow-length, dolman sleeves -- a tiny faceted button/loop closes neck. Glossy and plush.
