Coral and white-striped long-sleeve gown has lace at sleeves and decolletage, as well as a maroon velvet ribbon running along neck and cuffs of sleeves. Striped coral sheer fabric overlays a white polyester lining underneath. Original tag safety-pinned to sleeve reads: "Inv. 36847 / Joan Bennett Man in the Iron Mask".
