Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Believed to be from the 1970s, this coat is however pure Forties-style with fitted waist and square shoulders, slightly puffed, and padded. Joan would have loved this. On the other hand, she might have had to wrestle it out of the clutches of Ginger Rogers, as it would perfectly compliment the 'Ginger Rogers' gold evening sandals in my shoe section... (!) (Which were so popular that both pairs have sold out!)

Deep black soft, good quality silk velvet with white quilted satin lining (which has only minor staining/grubbiness at the bottom).

Two appliqué motifs on the breast of metallic gold thread with inset gold leather-effect material.

Six big velvet buttons, and a deep, generous hood to loosely cover your Forties pompadour and protect it from the elements without wrecking it.

Inside pocket, ribbon tie inside. 7-gore skirt.

All round, a most dramatic and stunning thing.

Excellent condition.

Shoulder to shoulder 10".
Shoulder to cuff 24".
Shoulder to waist 15".
Shoulder to hem 57".
Waist 26"
Hips 35".
Bust 35".
