Vintage 1930s Coat Cream White Wool Ladies Size Small


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage 1930s coat made in a cream white coloured felted wool, almost like a very light yellow. This vintage 1930s coat has a six button double breasted front.  The front of the coat has peaked lapels, long sleeves that are gathered at the shoulder seam, two button cuffs and a shallow pocket at either side.  The back of the coat has beautiful box pleated detailing across its upper back and a decorative belt across the back waist that is decorated with two buttons.  All of the buttons are carved celluloid.  The coat is fully lined in off-white acetate.  The wool is fairly lightweight, definitely meant for moderate cool and cold temperatures.  This vintage 1930s coat appears to be entirely hand sewn.

Age: early 1930s

Label: No label

Sizing:  There is no size label on this vintage 1930s coat and although itshould fit a small size, please rely on the following measurements for fit (note the narrow shoulders):

Shoulders: 13” across the top from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam, but your shoulder cap would fit into the gathered sleeve top

Sleeves: 24” long from shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeve Inseam: 17 3/4”

Bust: 36” around

Waist: 35” around

Hips: 42” around

Overall Length: 41 1/2”, measured flat

Condition:  This vintage 1930s coat is in very good condition with only a couple of surface fabric nibbles, one at the upper right front near the sleeve seam and a couple on the left sleeve, very minor.  In addition, there is one moisture spot on the lining, but, again, this is almost negligible.  Otherwise, this vintage 1930s coat is in surprisingly good condition considering its age and fabric.                           

This is a rather rare example of an early vintage 1930s coat as pieces of this age and type are getting very difficult to find - beautifully made, lovely style, and sure to be noticed!
