Stunning Original 1940s 40s Vintage Black Full Length Ensemble Evening Suit By Eisenberg Originals
This amazing ensemble was made from soft black wool in the 1940s. It is a real statement evening outfit, reminiscent of the sleek and elegant silhouette of the 1930s. The top was cut to an unusual longer length and the front has been adorned all over with large faceted glass buttons, whilst the back has been left plain. There is an attached belt at the back with a little button on each end, covering the long rear metal zipper. Turn up cuffs finish off the three quarter length sleeves and a simple cream satin collar elegantly binds the high neckline. The top is unlined and bears the collectible Eisenberg & Sons Original maker’s label. The skirt has been cut in an unusual full length style, which clearly makes this an evening suit and reminds us that wartime fabric rationing was not in place in the US. It has a sexy 14” rear vent with curved bottom edges and fastens with an original metal zipper and a button closure above. This outfit is just pure understated elegance personified!
