RESERVED FOR SENDI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 2 - due 2nd January 2021
This beautiful swing coat was made from a good quality fuchsia pink wool in the 1940s. The coat features an unusual wing collar which has been stitched at the underside to give lift creating a petal effect. As you would expect, the coat has the strong padded shoulders synonymous with the 1940s. A set of two burgundy and gold buttons just below the neckline fasten the coat and are framed with a round shoulder yolk above the bodice. This rounded yolk is mirrored at the back of the coat with three vertical seams stretching down to the hem. The coat also has long sleeves ending in a turn-up cuff and functional waist pockets. Inside, the coat is lined in satin which has been interlined for added warmth and has a maker’s label for Betty Rose.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
The coat is in good condition, however there are a number of surface nibbles to the exterior of the coat as pictured. There is also a larger darn to the front of the coat at the left hand side of the waist and a stain to the front right hand side as photographed.
