Original 1940s 40s Petite Vintage Brown Double Breasted Houndstooth Wool Coat
This wonderful coat was made in the 1940s from a cream wool tweed with a houndstooth pattern in three different shades of brown. It is cut in the classic strong 1940s silhouette with padded shoulders and a double breasted button fastening at the front. The sharp notched lapel collar highlights the strong shoulder line further abs there are functional pockets at the waist. Princess seaming gives a string shape to the back of the coat and highlights the wearer’s figure. Inside, the coat is lined in satin and without maker’s labels.
Shoulders: 12 1/4” seam to seam
Length: 32 1/2”
The coat is in very good condition with only a few marks as pictured, which may well lift with dry cleaning.
