This is a wonderful late 1930s vintage ladies coat meant for evening wear. This 1930s ladies coat has squared and padded shoulders with a slight puff to the upper sleeve. It has a jewel neckline with a rounded collar and is made in a full length. The coat has a defined waist and does up with five covered buttons down the upper front. The skirt of the coat is cut so as to flare out so that it falls in drapes. The sleeves are cut wide at the upper and taper to the cuff. The coat is fully lined in yellow taffeta. The upper sleeves and sides of the waist are beautiful decorated with cut steel beads and brass coloured melon shaped beads.
