* GLAMOROUS 1960s VINTAGE CYMBAE SCALLOPED SATIN QUILTED ROBE WITH BOW TIE IN GLACIER BLUE FROM HONG KONG
A beautiful very glamorous icy aqua blue satiny quilted robe from my own collection in Glacier Blue. I have had this gorgeous vintage robe for decades but have never worn it although I am sure someone else has.
I remember when I was growing up that I wanted one of these expensive quilted robes from Hong Kong but there was just no way that it was possible. - I have a very large collection of these in various gorgeous colors and am selling the remainder of my collection for someone else to enjoy them.
The ideal robe to wear when you want to look glamorous for a special evening at home or entertaining someone special - although these fabulous robes are quilted, they are light as a feather & will keep you warm without a lot of weight
What is so great about these vintage quilted robes from Hong Kong is that each of them has a different theme design - this one has a lovely quilted flowers and blossoms with trailing vines design - some have koi fish, paisley, leaves and buds, a water lily and vine design, others have chrysanthemums, a phoenix rising up, roses or other types of flowers, etc. - each one is different.
Fully lined in a silky same color aqua nylon fabric with no exposed seams inside to rub again your skin. The inside of these robes are finished with beautiful workmanship and has no exposed seams. The inside is as beautiful as the outside of the robe. These quilted robes from Hong Kong have stood the test of time and are as beautiful now as they were when they were made.
The robe is adorned with a bow at the top along with a scalloped front which I have never seen before in one of these robes and I have seen plenty of them since the late '60s. There is a long 34" zipper under the scalloped flap down the front which makes stepping into the robe so easy as well as some fabric covered snaps under the scalloped front.
The color is beautiful in an icy aqua shade with a wonderful sheen to the satiny fabric. The aqua shade is much prettier than what is shown in the photos. The true color is closest to the full length photo. Just a hard color to capture. The design on the robe is lovely flowers which are quilted beautifully.
There are 2 pockets in the side seams. Springy enclosed elastic on the ends of the slightly puffy sleeves at the wrist to keep the cold air from creeping up the sleeves.
So elegant with the scalloped front and bow and in a gorgeous shade of aqua!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.
