Splendid Ankle Length Gold Embroidered Velvet Coat

There are some clothes that I can only describe as "splendid". My red and turquoise kimono-coat is one; this embroidered velvet coat is another. Again, I don't know its country of origin, though I've found images of similar-looking garments from Lebanon. But wherever it originated, I myself found it in the Age Concern charity shop on Cowley Road, about ten years ago.

One notable feature is the thread buttons. I've had these checked and sewn on more tightly where necessary, because they'd be very difficult to replace once lost.
