FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - VINTAGE MARSHALL FIELD QUILTED ROBE ADORNED WITH SEA HORSES MADE IN HONG KONG IN CANDIED GINGER
A lovely vintage late ‘60s / early ’70s quilted robe made in Hong Kong.
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 now have a very large collection of these in various gorgeous colors and am selling my collection for someone else to enjoy them.
These wonderful robes are the ideal robe to wear when you want to look glamorous for a special evening at home or entertaining someone.
Although these fabulous robes are quilted, they are lightweight and will keep you warm without a lot of extra weight plus they are washable and come out of the washer and dryer looking beautiful.
These quilted robes from Hong Kong have stood the test of time and are as beautiful now as they were when they were made. Most of them look as though they have never been worn. This gorgeous robe is in excellent condition after all of these years. - They are just exquisite vintage quilted robes.
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 sea horse design and out of all of these quilted robes that I have owned and sold, this is the first time I have seen a sea horse design and it is just lovely. Some have koi fish, paisley, leaves and buds, others have chrysanthemums, roses or other types of flowers, etc. - each one is different.
This vintage robe from Marshall Field is in a fabric that is silky smooth and expensive as the robe was when it was new. The inside of these robes are finished with beautiful workmanship and have no exposed seams and are as beautiful as the outside of the robe.
The robe has unique 3-d floral frogs on the upper bodice on one side along with love knot buttons for closure. There are 3 cloth-covered snaps to secure it as well as a metal zipper which extends down the front of the robe and ends above the hemline.
The entire robe is quilted with the adorable sea horses, blossoms and swirls. The color is a lovely coral shade called Candied Ginger. Heavier quilting around the neckline and ends of sleeves. Matching piping around the neckline, ends of the sleeves and down the entire length of the front of the robe. Pockets in the side seams. Slimming princess seams in front & back. Immaculate silky matching lining.
Just a lovely vintage robe from Marshall Field made in Hong Kong adorned with darling sea horses.

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.
