Lovely 1920s Unlabeled Caramel Coloured Fine Wool Flapper Coat w Faux Broadtail Collar
This is a gorgeous twenties flapper coat that is not 100% perfect but too dreamy to not give it a second life. It is made out of a beautiful caramel wool that is soft and light. This is accented with light taupe collar this is finished in what looks like a faux broadtail. The coat has a beautiful drape and ease. It falls to just past the knees and has a loose and easy cut so can be thrown on over just about anything. The upper portion of the coat has soft rounded shoulders and these curve gracefully into the sleeves. Each sleeve is quite special with a huge turned up cuff that ends in two angled points. More detail is added to the cuffs with four lovely curving scalloped designs that run up the length of each cuff. These same scalloped edges are used along the seams of the front and at the back. The collar is equally special with a wide soft cut that sits up a bit from the shoulders and at the back it angles down into a point. The button to close it at the front is a large hand carved bakelite button. I love the folds of fabric under the button that fall to look like a ribbon to the hem. At some point someone has removed the entire interior lining and the seams have bits of that and the ribbon that secured it here and there. I see a small repair that is hidden when you close the coat. It is so lovely that I feel that these things that you don't see when it is one are entirely forgivable. Excellent condition other then the items noted. Please read the full description below
The lining has been removed and you can see parts of it here and there at the edges. It closes with the button at the front. I see a repair to the wool on the front under where it crosses over. This is hidden when the coat is closed. There is a residue under on arm at the seam that shows through and a repair on the loop that closes the coat. Please see the last three photos. Sold as found. The loose and open cut will fit a range of sizes. For its age it is still sound and wearable.

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
