This is such a gorgeous vintage pongee silk robe, probably from the 1940s or 50s. The ecru pongee silk is so delicate and lightweight--perfect for wearing in spring and summer festival seasons.
It is a raw-type silk with natural slubs in the weave. The orange and blue floral print is simply stunning. The featured peonies and wisteria are such beautiful flowers. I have not seen a pongee robe in this earth tone color palette before. The label reads, Made in Japan.It is a "One Size Fits Most" style due to the fact that it hangs open with no closures. Please see measurements below to ensure a proper fit. Underarm to underarm: 24 inches across back. Length: 38.5 inches from collar to bottom hemline. This robe is in good to very good vintage condition. The following flaws are shown in photographs 4 through 12: It has a few pin holes, loose threads or snags, and stains on one sleeve and a thin spot (about two inches long near the bottom, thin area only really visible when you hold the robe up to the light as shown in photo 12), but the robe is still strong and sturdy for being such a lightweight silk. There are one or two areas where it looks like there was a flaw that took place in the printing of the flowers (see photo 7).
This has been dry cleaned, but is slightly wrinkled from being tried on. Please examine the photos carefully use the zoom option! Keep in mind that colors vary depending on which device you use to view the photos! I feel that the close up photos numbers 6-11 show the truest color of the robe!
Please keep in mind that this is vintage clothing. Vintage clothing will have flaws as it is not new. I have done my best to describe every flaw I see and all details of the robe with care, but I may have overlooked something. From a smoke-free, pet friendly home.
