DESCRIPTION: A black cotton woman's jacket, appliquéd with colorful bands of intricate needlework panels. The embroidery on many of the panels is exceptional with sequins scattered among floral, geometric and bird design motifs. Some of the finely embroidered panels appear to be much older than the jacket itself; this is not surprising as beautiful needlework is highly prized in minority tribes and is passed down through families for generations. This jacket is stunning enough for formal attire and would look beautiful with either skirts or pants. We estimate this jacket to be 30 to 40 years old with some of the embroidery panels over 100 years. CONDITION: Good condition; scattered loose threads. SIZE: This jacket would fit an average height woman, size 6 or smaller. DIMENSIONS: 22 1/2" long (57 cm) from shoulder to bottom hem; 26" sleeve/shoulder length from outside edge of sleeve hem to neck opening.
