Amazing Original 1940s 40s Vintage Aubergine Purple Blazer With Beadwork And Draping
This stunning blazer was made from aubergine purple rayon in the early 1940s. It features the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with super strong padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless neckline draws further emphasis to the strong shoulders and the wearer’s right bust has been adorned with a large foliage motive made up of beads and sequins. This fabulous decorative detail is offset with a panel of beautifully draped fabric on the opposite hip. The blazer fastens with a single asymmetrical placed button at the waist and is lined in silk inside.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
Length: 24 1/2”
The jacket is in very good condition with only a few minuscule paint flecks and some loose stitching to the lining as pictured.
