Detail 1920s Rare Assuit Flapper Coat. The technique used to make this has been done for a very very long time and is still done today but not to the same degree and quality of the pieces done in the twenties. The base is a fine cotton mesh which then has silver hammered onto it and folded - in essence the metal is wrapped around the mesh to form that fantastic design. The main body of the piece is is literally covered - the back is solid silver on the mesh. It is lined in a cream silk.
