Aubergine Silk Velvet Ottoman Bolero Jacket and Silk Striped Skirt: C19th Ottoman
From the 19th century a woman’s aubergine silk velvet bolero jacket with gilt embroidery with a plum and acid green striped silk skirt. Both in original antique condition.
The jacket had some rubs to the velvet and some tears to the lining and some fading to the velvet. The skirt has some small rubs to the silk surface, and the tulle trim decoration which runs just above the hem is shattering.
