DESCRIPTION: This mid 50's short coat or "topper" jacket is an atypical, striking color--rich, deep turquoise blue. Nice change from the usual colors. Made of a short-loop wool bouclé. Features long shawl collar with decorative seaming and topstitching and sleeves that are full through the elbow area, then taper snugly to the wrist. Sleeves have seaming/topstitching detail to match the collar. Has set-in waist pockets and single hidden button at base of collar. Nice swing shape. Has a beautiful irridescent rayon taffeta lining with an insulated backing for warmth. So, though not a particularly heavy coat, it should be very warm. Approximately a "3/4 length" coat (depending on how tall you are--this is shown on a 5' 9" manni.

CONDITION: Excellent to near mint; I see no flaws or obvious signs of wear. Clean, ready to wear.

SIZE: Approx. small. May fit up to a small medium, but check shoulder dimension. Depends on what you wear under it and how you like your coats to fit. BUT, go by the measurements, not my estimate. You need to leave about 4" to 6" room for your body in a coat (again, depending on what you typically wear underneath).

* Shoulder to Shoulder: 13 3/4"; Chest: 40"; Waist: 41"; Hips: 45"; Sleeve Length: 23" on outside from shoulder seam; Coat Length: 36 1/2" down center back seam; Hem Sweep: 62"

* All dimensions taken with coat laid flat, button fastened, and front overlapped naturally
