Stunning Original 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Fuchsia Pink Betty Rose Coat
This incredible coat was made from fuchsia pink wool in the 1940s. It is cut in the classic silhouette of the period featuring super strong padded shoulders and a straight cut. The sharp dagger collar leads to a single row of three buttons which fasten the coat at the front. Matching smaller buttons have been used to decorate the scalloped pockets in an offset configuration. We have left them as we originally found them but they could be moved to the point of the pockets for a more symmetrical look. The back if the coat features wonderful seam work in the shape of a huge W which adds a fabulous detail to the silhouette. The underside of the collar is adorned with cream top stitched detailing, which will look amazing if the collar is worn up. Inside, the coat is lined in satin with a warm wool interlining and bears the desirable Betty Rose maker’s label.
Shoulders: 17 1/2” seam to seam
The coat is in very good condition with only a repair to the pocket and a couple of pinholes and grazes as pictured. If the pocket buttons were moved to the centre, this would hide the repair.
