1930s Deep Red Velvet and Satin Lounging Pajamas
1930s deep claret red velvet and satin lounging pajamas.
Approximately a size Medium.
1930s deep claret red lounging pajama set. The top is velvet, with a wide collar, with a trapunto stitched design. It has a tie and snap closure. It has long sleeves, with notches in the cuffs. The pants are hammered satin, with side hook and eye and snap closures. I am not sure of the fiber content. They feel like silk, but I can't get quite enough from a seam to do a good burn test. The pants look like a hammered silk satin.
In good condition, with no stains. There are a few small holes in the collar. The belt is missing. We have not laundered this, mainly because we don't trust out small, rural dry cleaner to do it carefully enough. We have aired it out in the fresh air for days, but it still retains a very, very slight odor from storage.
