Original Late 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Coral Wool Coat With Trapunto Quilting And Large Carved Buttons
This fabulous coat was made from a coral boucle wool in the late 1940s. It is cut in a classic swing coat style which hangs loosely from the gently padded shoulders. The bust is decorated with stunning trapunto quilting with gold embroidered centres. The small rounded collar leads to a single line of three large carved statement buttons that fasten the coat. There are functional slit pockets at the hips and at the back, a triangular yolk further enhances the shoulder line. Inside, the coat is lined in coral acetate and is without maker’s labels.
Bust: loose fitting but measures up to 48” due to dolman sleeves
Shoulders: 17 1/2” from edges of shoulder pads but would accommodate more due to dolman sleeves
The coat is in very good condition, however there is some damage and discolouration to the lining but this cannot be seen when worn.
