Authentic 1890s Victorian Paris Ladies Coat by Mme Ludinart SALE Originally 320 NOW 250

Authentic, elegant Circa 1890-4 Coat, most likely made by the famous dressmaker, Madame Ludinart, with her tag inside. This coat is made of a unique fabric that I have not seen before. It looks and feels like Corduroy, but has a two-tone color and iridescence to it that is not typical of that fabric. The brown trim is used lavishly around the sleeve caps, collar and down the front and is adorned with hand sewn tiny gold beads on it as well as tiny metallic gold roping. The dressmakers label is sewn on the inside. I have seen one other coat from this designer, which sold at auction for $1400.00. I can provide more photos upon request.

Mme. Ludinart was well known for her unusual and rich trimmings. Some of her garments are described in detail in an article published in the NY Times, regarding the new Paris fashions. Here is a link to that article, which also tells of how this designer was commissioned for 60 new dresses for a certain Viscountess de Carapebus. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=9403E6D71039E533A25755C2A9619C94649FD7CF

Another interesting note on this Paris designer is that she was commissioned to make clothing for a famous Paris Actress, Mlle Demarsy. Demarsy posed for the famous artists,' Manet and Renoir. The Renoir painting of this actress sold for a reported sum of 5.5 million at auction. Here is a link to a photo of her, perhaps wearing a Ludinart coat? http://www.luminous-lint.com/app/image/02756215602120579401276078/

Buyer pays $12.00 for priority shipping (based on item's weight and bulk), with insurance and tracking included! All sales are final. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have prior to purchase, and can send more photos upon request. Note: My international shipping rates are very reasonable, with no handling charges but buyers should contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase. Direct paypal or credit cards through paypal are my preferred method of payment. Paypal only for outside US.


The outside fabric of the coat is strong and the trim is in very good condition, but a new lining for the coat needs to be made, as the silk lining is shattered with the metal boning being pulled away from the outer coat.
