Rare Russian Czarist Era Embellished Cream Wool Coat & Skirt Ensemble

The best of the best, this cream wool coat ensemble is so beautifully embellished with hand stitched soutache braid and elaborate silk braid closures and woven tassels.

There are three swag tassel closures over a concealed row of Mother of Pearl buttons. This is set against vertical bands of hand applied silk soutache. This motif is repeated on the collar, the sleeves, the center back and the bottom of the coat. I have never seen such an elaborate example. The matching skirt has soutache at the center front and center back. The skirt has a slight train and it is longer than the coat. The coat bears the label of a St. Petersburg, Russia company. The exterior is in excellent condition, the original silk lining is beginning to split. The skirt is in excellent condition.
