Original Vintage 1940s 40s Dark Grey Double Breasted Wool Coat By Betty Rose
This gorgeous coat was made from a charcoal grey wool in the 1940s. This piece is so typical of its period with enormous padded shoulders giving the coat that classic 1940s silhouette. It is cut in a double breasted style and has functional pockets at the waist. The super sharp notched dagger collar has been highlighted with black velvet and a small faux pocket at the bust adds another classic detail. The back of the coat features a large rear vent and the sleeve cuffs could be turned up. Inside, the coat is lined in black satin with a warm wool interlining. It also features the desirable Betty Rose maker’s label.
Shoulders: 17” seam to seam
The coat is in very good condition with only a missing decorative button, which is not noticeable when worn. There is also a flaw in the fabric weave on the sleeve as pictured.
