Vintage Antique Silk Kimono Style Blouse

Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

This is such an interesting piece. It seems to be a very drapey, open front blouse, reminiscent of a kimono, or perhaps something to be worn underneath an Oriental style jacket or actual kimono, like a chemise perhaps. Oriental clothing is not my wheel house so I'm unsure. Please forgive my ignorance. All that said, it did come to me from a collection of vintage costumes, so could just be something that was invented for a film. Either way, its quite old and could have many many uses today for a costume look.  It has a drawstring at the waist, french seams, wide raglan sleeves and a very loose shawl type collar. It is completely open in the front,  Looks and feels like silk. My best guess as to age of this is earliest 1900s to maybe 1920s.  Has a Warner Brothers sticker inside. This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Excellent vintage condition. No major issues worth noting, just some pinhead to pea sized holes and other minor signs of age. Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..) that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.
Measurements taken lying flat.
One size fits most. Please msg me if you are in need of anything specific.
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film. Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier. I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however. That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
