Glamorous 1960s Tailored Black Wool Coat w Densely Beaded Cuffs Collar & Buttons

This is one of those lovely things you only find with vintage. It is an exceptional piece that is just fantastic. It is made from a heavier weight black wool and this is what gives it its structure. It is cut in the manner of a military great coat with a more fitted upper body and then it flares out wide through the lower half of the coat. Every line of this coat is fantastic. The collar is set to be oversized and sits across the front ending in two pointed ends. A double row of buttons run down the front. The sleeves are long and each ends with the most amazing wide cuffs. All of the edges of the cuffs are finished in the most elaborate combination of bead work and black silk cording. This sits off of the fabric for a 3D feels with the gloss of the beads against the black of the fabric making the most wonderful contrast. This same treatment edges the collar all the way around. If the beadwork on the cuffs and collar weren't enough each of the eight buttons at the front are also finished with the same beads that have been hand applied over the big dome buttons. It is just incredible to see in person. The seams to bring in the waist are all set on curves and the skirt under the waist flares out to be quite full and wide. It is truly one of the best vintage coats I have seen and a definite find. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition 

Fully lined in a black silk and closes with hidden snaps at the front. Shallow pockets hidden along the side seams. This is a medium to heavy weight coat and is beautifully made.
