This incredible and very rare 1940s hand embroidered crewel coat is just breath taking! Cut in a traditional 1940s princess coat silhouette, with vivid pink + green coloured all over embroidered this coat is so beautiful I consider it a piece of wearable art! The coat is cut from a mid weight linen with detailed all over floral embroidered which has a subtle graduated design to it, wooded button + metal zip fastening to the front. The shoulder has a stand off the shoulders very subtly but this detail, along with the coat nipping in at the waist and falling out to create an A-line silhouette, creates an extremely flattering silhouette. The interior of this coat is just as stunning as the exterior. An incredible example of a vintage crewel embroidered duster coat!
Size: XS-Small, the below measurements are maximum measurements. There are large seam allowances inside the coat which could allow for the coat to be altered, by a trusted tailor. Size Detail: Model is 6ft1 Measurements: Bust 34 Inches 86.5cm, Waist 28 Inches 71cm, Shoulder to Shoulder 17 Inches 43cm, Sleeve Length 23 Inches 58.5cm , Length 54.5 Inches 139cm Material: Linen base, Silk thread Care: Specialist Dry Clean ONLY Condition: Vintage, whilst this coat isn't perfect it is in great condition for its age and delicate nature. There are patched of missing embroidery down the front placard + on sleeves, mainly elbows. There is small repair to the linen on one elbow also but it isn't very noticeable. I think the signs of wear to this piece add more romance and authenticity to the coat which still has many many many years of wear in it left.
