Turkish Ottoman antique long yellow silk ladies robe


This remarkly long silk gown must have been designed to be used  ceremoniously. Otherwise impracticle unless you happen to be 2m or 6ft 6" tall . Although it ciuld be designed to be ticked in at the waist although thehre is  no evidence of this ever being done. Given the complexity of the two colour ' oya ' trim  and the fact it has a pocket means this  long attari type robe could not have been a show piece or for display purposes. More likey attire for a matromony. The ravishing canary yellow colour is almost perfectly preserved.

The belt is not part of the costume as offered

Probably late 19th cent

Ref 16437
