Original 1930s 30s Red Velvet Vintage Double Breasted Coat
This elegant coat was made from a beautiful quality red velvet in the late 1930s. The coat is cut to be double breasted with four fabric covered buttons at the waist and an additional two buttons just below the shoulder. The beginnings of a 1940s silhouette is created through a nipped waist and padded shoulders, yet the puff in the shoulder gives it a firmly 1930s feel. The v-neckline is framed with a notched label collar which gives this coat an almost military feel. Inside the coat is lined in white rayon.
Shoulders: 14 1/2” seam to seam
The coat is in good condition, however there are some small marks and a tiny tear to the outside of the coat. Inside, there is some staining to the side under the fold over and the lining has been repaired.
