1930's Antique Black Velvet Hooded Evening Coat - M
This is a stunning & romantic long vintage antique 1930's black velvet coat with a hood. The jet black fabric is so ultra soft, we think it's silk velvet & is lined in ivory satin, but it could be rayon. The shoulders/top of sleeves have stays or fabric inside to give them that very 1930's puff. There's nothing harder to photograph than black velvet, it's difficult to show the amazing details this antique Art Deco era coat has. It has one velvet button in front. The inside liner is backed in a warmer fabric, (we're not sure exactly what it is we think cotton like a felt or similar) so it's perfect for colder evenings. It's not overly heavy just a slightly fuzzy warm fabric on the inside of the ivory satin liner. The photos don't do this gorgeous antique art deco evening coat justice!
Condition Details: Dry cleaned at a non-toxic earth friendly dry cleaners. The velvet is almost perfect, no holes or stains & very minimal wear it's also very black, no fading. The only signs of wear are to the inside liner. It has a few small stains at the bottom & around the underarms, we hand spot cleaned the liner.
Size: MEDIUM - Aprox a modern US 7/8/9 - We tried this on a barefoot 5'3" model size US 8, & it was floor length. She has a 38" bust & there was plenty of room/fabric left.
