Flowing Peacock Coat
Price (non-member): $165.00
Price (member): $148.50
Strut Your Stuff. This Flowing Peacock Coat is two silken jackets in one—each as sophisticated for a terrace cocktail as a night at the opera. Reverses from a floral patterned turquoise to a peacock feather motif and is elegantly styled with a shawl collar and beautiful diagonal hem. Lightweight, crinkle-look polyester. Imported. One size fits most.
In 1904 Charles Lang Freer acquired a London shipping magnate’s dining room (magnificently painted in brilliant blue-greens by American artist James McNeill Whistler) and moved it to his Detroit mansion. Upon completion of its reinstallation, Freer filled the shelves with more than 250 pots he had collected throughout Asia. Donated to the Smithsonian, and now restored to its 1908 appearance (including the Asian ceramics), The Peacock Room Comes to America (though spring 2013) is the first exhibition held in this Freer Gallery treasure in 20 years.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
