Original 1940s 40s Vintage Jacket With Strong Shoulders And Beading
This gorgeous jacket was made from a navy wool crepe in the early 1940s. It features super strong padded shoulders with slight gathering at the top of the sleeves and stunning thick bead work along all of the edges of the jacket. The blazer is cut in a flattering open fronted, slightly cropped style. Inside, the jacket is lined in navy blue crepe and bears the National Recovery Board label as well as a maker’s label for L. Bamberger & Co of Newark.
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 18 1/2”
The jacket is in fair condition with a number of well executed darns and some damage to the lining as pictured. There is a small amount of bead loss but overall the beading feels secure.
