Object Description
Red velvet bolero with black cord and bead trim. Appears to be part of Greek costume. The bolero has a boxy shape and its size indicates that it is likely meant for a child. A small protion close to the neck of the front two panels is folded down to mimic lapels. There is also a hook right underneath this portion allowing the jacket to be closed securely. In the back panel there is a 4 in slit down the middle. The jacket's sleeves are short. The sleeves, front panels and edge are all embellished with the same swirly design made out of black cord and sequins and below this little black bobbles. The jacket is lined with red silk.
Origin
A bolero is a short structured formal garment. This jacket is likely a part of a Greek costume.
