This is a beautiful and COLORFUL vintage Chinese short jacket. It may have had matching pants but I don't have them. The jacket is off white (ivory colored) jacquard woven satin with large gold metallic thread dragons worked in padded embroidery on both sides of the chest area. Unlabeled, it fastens with one pair of decorative 'frog' or knotted closures at the base of the band neck. It has long bell-shaped sleeves.


Pre-owned, used; in good condition EXCEPT FOR a yellowed stain at the back of the neck. I won't launder it myself because the red details on the embroidered dragon might run in the water. My cleaner would FAINT if I asked them to clean this jacket because there's no fiber content label. :-/


No size label- it's approx. a woman's small. My mannequin has a 34" bust and it's a snug with a gap at the chest. Please read the actual garment measurements given next--
