Exquisite 40s jacket in fine brown wool with wonderful beadwork of small bronze and emerald glass and metallic beads. Silhoutte is softly fitted to the waist and strong shoulders. It fastens to the front with three covered buttons. A huge collar with rounded lapels, the upper and back of which are elaborately beaded. Strongly padded shoulders. Large patch pockets to the hips with beadwork finish. Fully lined in russet brown rayon. Slightly longer length, finishes mid-hip.
The jacket is not labeled with a size but fits approx a S-M, the bust and shoulders are a bit more generous, but the hip is slightly smaller fitting, so hard to convert to modern sizing, for your best fit please go by the measurements. Please note that you may need to leave a little bit of room for movement depending on desired fit.
15.5" from shoulder to shoulder
Sleeve: 23.5" from shoulder to cuff
Sleeve: 17.5" from underarm to cuff
Very good condition.
Tiny pin hole to the sleeve and another by the lapel, just where the placket covers it. See photo.
