Opera coat, c.1922 "The coat is fashioned from cobalt blue devoré velvet, cut to a ground of bronzed gold metallic lamé. The upper back and sleeve borders are of solid silk velvet elaborately embroidered with a Persian pattern of bronze metallic cord and small, coral colored beads. The bodice front sections of the coat are self lined with devoré velvet; the rest of the coat is lined with rose colored silk velvet."
