From the 1770s onwards, fabrics with stripes became very popular. This "Robe Manteau" has two vertical stripe patterns in cream and yellow, separated by a thin vertical stripe in purple. This preference for striped patterns remained popular even during the French Revolution.
This "Robe Manteau" was worn together with a skirt (Jupe) and a triangular plug (Piéce d'estomac /Stomacher). These garments were worn over a hoop skirt or breading. This robe is open at the front. Tight-fitting top. Deep pleats in the back, typical of the robe à la Française. Pagoda sleeves with single tiered flounces. Very well preserved. Discreet signs of age and wear. A few insignificant stains. Decoration is not included. Very rare to find.
