VINTAGE '50s / '60s MACY'S MARCHIONESS METAL ZIP UP SILK & RAYON QUILTED DRESSING GOWN / ROBE MADE IN HONG KONG WITH METAL ZIPPER IN EMERALD ISLE
An absolutely gorgeous vintage '50s/'60s quilted dressing gown / lounger / robe made in Hong Kong in in a shade called Emerald Isle. Green is one of the colors that is rare in quilted robes and is rarely seen so I am so glad that I found this one.
I remember when I was growing up that I wanted one of these expensive quilted loungers or robes from Hong Kong but there was just no way that it was possible. Now I have a very large collection of these in various gorgeous colors.
This robe is in an exquisite shade called Emerald Isle. It can be worn as a lounging robe or over a nightgown as a robe. The luxurious fabric is silky smooth & expensive rayon & silk. The ideal lounging robe to wear when you want to look glamorous for a special evening at home or entertaining someone special.
Intricately swirled stitched fabric around the neck & down the front of this zip up robe. More beautifully stitching on the ends of the sleeves & the hemline. The quilting on the entire robe is in a floral, leaf & trailing vines pattern.
What is so great about these vintage quilted lounging robes from Hong Kong is that each of them has a different theme design. This one has a flowers, leaves and vines design, some have seashell , koi fish, paisley, peacocks, rising phoenix, leaves & buds, chrysanthemums, roses or other types of flowers, etc. Each one is different.
There are 2 pockets in the seams of the robe. There are loops & a matching quilted belt which is not shown in the photos. The lining is in a matching emerald shade & is silky smooth. The inside of the robe is finished with beautiful workmanship & has no exposed seams as all of these robes from Hong Kong are. It is as beautiful as the outside of the robe. There is a long metal zipper in front with a hook & eye at the top which will open completely if you wish. 12-1/2" slits on the lower sides for a glimpse of a lovely leg when walking. Wonderful hand stitching on the lining which one never sees any more.
This gorgeous emerald green robe is in very good condition with just a few small imperfections after all of these years as these were popular in the late 60s / early 70s.
Just a gorgeous color of Emerald Isle in this beautiful vintage quilted robe from Hong Kong.

Bust: 43 but leave some room for movement
Shoulder to shoulder: Cannot measure because of the way the sleeves have been put in
Sleeve from neck: 24
Hips: 45 - 46 but leave enough room for movement
Fabric: Rayon & Silk
Care: Dry clean
Condition: Very good - some small imperfections but not uncommon considering the age and not that noticeable - minute separation shown in photo at a seam on the upper right hand shoulder - small hole at the waistline from where the belt was & probably rubbed against the fabric and caused it but the belt will cover that small imperfection & some tiny ones elsewhere but they can be pulled together with a needle & thread - easy fix - some light soiling on robe & a little fading on inside seam on the robe - a hole in the LINING which no one will see on the lower slit on one side. All small imperfections considering the robe is from the '60s/ '70s.
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 as there is no return on clothing or other items.
