Vintage Embroidered Mexican Coat of Arms Silk Shirt | Women's S/M


Vintage heavily embroidered silk button down blouse featuring the Mexican Coat of Arms. This design comes from the legend of the founding of modern-day Mexico City, that tell us the Aztec people ended their migration and built their city, Tenochtitlan, when they saw an eagle devouring a snake while sitting on a prickly pear cactus. This version of the coat of arms was only used in Mexico between 1893-1916, though that does not necessarily mean the shirt is antique. I would put the date the shirt to the 1960s-70s.

This shirt buttons down the front and has a tie waist with cuffed sleeves. Embroidered on the cuffs, collar, chest, back, and two front pockets. There may be small nicks or snags in the silk and in the embroidery. Otherwise, great condition with no stains.
