Original 1950s 50s Vintage Grey Princess Coat With Black Velvet Collar And Cuffs
This stunning coat was made in the early 1950s from lightweight grey wool with a subtle plaid pattern. It is cut in a classic fit and flare style with a nipped waist leading to a flared skirt. The notched lapel collar features black velvet accents which are mirrored on the turn up cuffs and faux pocket flaps. Six decorative plastic buttons fasten the coat at the front. Inside, the coat is unlined with beautifully bound seams.
Shoulders: 17” seam to seam
The coat is in very good condition with only some slight wear to the velvet on the collar. At some point fusible interfacing has been added to the inside of the placket (behind the buttons and buttonholes) to firm these up but this is not visible when worn.
