30” length x 41” cuff to cuff

Russian silk brocade with gold and silver metallic threads

Russian printed-cotton lining (center back lining panel has faded)

Good condition except for some wear to the metallic threads; a few stains on lining; and fading to the back lining.

Illustrated in RUSSIAN TEXTILES, pages 110-11

Except for very young children, who needed extra protection from evil spirits, boys and girls dressed much the same way as their parents. The stand-up collar as seen as this robe, distinguishes a man’s robe from a woman’s. So this robe was made for a young boy from a well-to do family who could afford the costly imported Russian brocade.
