This is a 1950s era black velvet brocade coat with dark brown fox fur collar and cuffs. The coat is cut to fit loosely with a flare to the hemline so that it falls in drapes, somewhat like a swing coat - it should accommodate a large to extra large size. It is lined in black satin and has both a wool interfacing as well as a chamois interfacing for extra warmth. I assume that the exterior is a cotton based velvet fabric. The coat does up the front with three button covered snaps. There is a pocket built into either front side. The fur collar could be worn either down or up around the face for extra warmth - I’ve posed it both ways in the photos supplied. The sleeves are cut in a raglan style. It is possible that the coat was shortened as the length is not typical of a 50s coat - there is a 5 1/2” hem on the interior bottom. Please note that the coat is suitable for winter wear, but is of a heavier weight.
