1930s Ermine & Silk Velvet Evening Coat

Every once in a while you find a coat so exceptional it takes your breath away and this is one. The long sweeping lines, the inner cream silk lining that flashes that contrast of color when you move. And of course that amazing touch of ermine fur at the collar and down each sleeve! You do see these with ermine collars but this is the first I have seen with sleeves like this. They are each a bell sleeve - widening as the come to the cuff and then looping under to the inner lining so they puff out at each wrist. The collar is also extraordinary - it is set almost off shoulder and crosses over itself. It closes with huge jeweled buttons offset as was the flapper fashion. The inside is in excellent condition with no shattering. Really a killer piece and strong and wearable for years to come! Extraordinary!

Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: 17î flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14î flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19î flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Length: 55î from mid neck at the back to bottom hem
Sleeves: approx 22î from shoulder seam to longest point

The coat is fully lined in cream silk satin that is in excellent condition. It has a tie on the inside waist and then closes with offset rhinestone encrusted metal cut out button and loops on the outside. It has a good weight to it but is not unwieldy to wear. There is a hidden inside pocket with ruffles edge along one seam inside. The fur is in excellent condition.
