Turkish Ottoman antique long yellow silk ladies robe

£ 480.00

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
