50’s Maroon Lounging Robe, Vtg Smoking Robe
Man’s vintage rayon robe or dressing gown dating from no later than the 1950's and likely earlier. Dark maroon heavy rayon fabric with a dark grey satin lining. Wrap style with the unattached fringed sash, 2 large hip side patch pockets with another smaller breast pocket. Sleeves are long with stitched down cuffs. This is a heavy robe more suitable for the winter season.
It is an older robe and there are some condition issues. The right sleeve has some very light white spotting, some iron shine on the lapels and possibly from being dry cleaned and some fading on the edge of the collar near the neck which is mostly toward the inside and on the lower right side midway is a faint spot and a faint darker spot, right side in the thigh area. There is a vintage dry cleaning tag on the sash which I did not remove. These issues can be seen in the photographs.
The only label is a size tag of M tucked inside the breast pocket.
Measurements are approximate due to styling. Taken while laying flat and barely closed. These are the largest measurements the robe will accommodate.
chest is an easy 48"
total length 48 1/2"
