Description

Vintage 1940s Vera Maxwell Original Wool Tweed Coat, Orange Spice


This is a beautiful orange spice color wool tweed coat by Vera Maxwell that dates to the late 1940's. It has the classic 40's shape, slightly fitted and sleek with turned up cuffs at the wrists. The coat has princess pieced seaming at the back and an interesting bodice and sleeve treatment. There are three buttons that fasten at the bodice only and the lining is a beautiful two tone dark russet satin. There is a very old garment tag inside the sleeve under the arm that says: National Coat and Suit Board....Manufacture and Fair Labor Standards.

Excellent condition! I have steamed this to freshen but it has not been dry cleaned. I did have to add a missing button at the last hole, see the photo. It was the best match I had and believe me, I have thousands of buttons, heaven knows! It is a braided leather shank button and adds a bit of fun, don't you think?



*Vera Maxwell began her design career in the 1930's, forming Vera Maxwell Originals in 1947 which sold strong through the 1960's. She was famous for her suits and topcoats due to her wonderful fabrics, colors and tailoring. Vera is credited for the trend in Ultra Suede in the 1970's. Along with the designers Bonnie Cashin and Claire McCardell, Vera Maxwell was a pioneer of "ready to wear"sportswear in America.



Measurements; The measurements are of the garment and not the body that will go into it so please add inches for ease of wear and room for sweaters underneath. I estimate this should fit a modern size womens medium.

Approximate Shoulder measured across top - 17 inches (43.18 cm)
Bust - 37 inches (93.98 cm)
Waist - 38 inches (96.52 cm)
Hip - 45 inches (114.30 cm)
Sleeve length center neck down - 31 inches (78.74 cm)
Length from center back collar seam down - 42 inches (106.68 cm)

Returns and exchange details

I hope you will enjoy your shopping experience and the handmade or vintage item that you purchase from StelmaDesigns. If you are not happy, please contact me right away.

You may return a purchase with the exception of lingerie and NOS never worn vintage clothing ("New Old Stock"). I do not refund for issues based on the fit of a garment, as I provide many measurements to help you with this. I am always happy to provide extra measurements and help you with questions in regards to fit, as vintage clothing is often not cut like modern clothing of today. Special occasion dresses; prom, cocktail and wedding dresses are also final sale, so please measure carefully and contact me for help with any questions at all. Items must be in the exact condition as sent with no smoke, body or perfume odors and unworn. Shipping fees are non refundable.

Request to make a return must be made within 24 HOURS of receipt of your package based on the tracking delivery time and date. Your returned item needs to be in the mail on its way back to me within THREE DAYS of delivery confirmation to you, in the same condition as sent, with no new damage or missing buttons etc, no pet hairs, smoke odors, body odors or perfume and I will refund the purchase price less shipping. Shop credit will be given for returns past the time frame mentioned above. My goal is for you to be a very satisfied and hopefully repeat customer to my shop!

***Receiving a vintage garment and then discovering it fits you poorly can be avoided if you follow my suggestions and ask questions. Please understand that I take great care to give you accurate and complete measurements on my garments so that a disappointment in the fit doesn't happen. A flexible measuring tape is your friend. It is *very important* that you compare my measurements to a similar garment you own that fits well. For body measurements, you must allow one to several inches for room to move. As I mention above under "Vintage Clothing", garments from the past were not made as forgiving in fit as modern clothing today can be. Fabric content and color is also listed to the best of my ability, so please ask questions if you do not know what a fabric is like or if a color needs to be exact. Please send me any questions on measurements and fit you need help with. I am very happy to help you in this regard! Nothing is more disappointing than finding your beautiful vintage garment you just received doesn't fit you.

Thank you!... and a special thank you to my many repeat and happy customers! Julia
