Gorgeous Original Vintage Late 1940s Early 1950s Red Wool Swing Jacket By Betty Rose
This fabulous coat was made from thick bright red wool in the late 1940s / early 1950s. It was cut in a classic loose fitting swing style and a flattering shorter length. There is a fabulous circular stitched shoulder yolk which adds a beautiful design detail and similar stitching runs around the back of the coat near the hem terminating in functional arrow shaped pockets at the sides. Stunning lucite buttons decorate those arrow tabs and the coat fastens with a larger version of the same button at the neck. Huge turn up cuffs and a small rounded collar finish off the coat in style. Inside, the coat is lined in red acetate, quilted at the neckline, and bears the maker’s label for Betty Rose Coats and Suits.
The coat is in very good condition with only some slight moth grazes, mainly at the back of the collar, as pictured.
