Vintage 1940s Purple Silk Asian Jacket

Lightweight silk.  Gorgeous purple tone with an amazingly detailed Asian landscape print.  The fabric has a beautiful luminosity that subtly reflects light.  Wide, padded shoulders with short puff sleeves.  Slightly nipped waist.  Linear stitched detailing on the collar, sleeves, and pockets.  Two pockets.  Knotted buttons.  Lined with tissue silk.  Perhaps originally a top to a lounge set, but most certainly makes a lovely top or jacket to pair with wide leg pants or jeans.
