Fabulous Original Early 1950s 50s Volup Vintage Red Boucle And Astrakhan Statement Coat With Huge Bishop Sleeves
This fabulous statement coat was made from red boucle wool in the 1950s. It is cut in a classic loosely fitting swing shape, intended to accommodate the voluminous dresses of the decade. The shoulder section of the coat has been adorned with sumptuous black astrakhan fur to give a cape effect to the coat. The small stand up collar has a single button and loop fastening as well as two press stud closures and small slit pockets are hidden in the voluminous folds of the coat. The huge bishop sleeves with tightly fitted button cuffs add a real statement feature to the coat. Inside, the coat is lined in satin with a thick wool interlining and has a maker’s label for Lazarus as well as a National Recovery Board tag.
Length: 46 1/2”
The coat is in very good condition with only a faint mark and a few small breaks in the fur which are lost in the texture. There is also a large mark to the lining, which is not visible when worn.
