1950s Coat

A beautiful vintage 1950s coat with nipped in waist and flared, pleated skirt.

Product Description

A beautiful vintage 1950s coat with nipped in waist and flared, pleated skirt. A gorgeous vintage original. Worthy of Grace Kelly! With a gorgeous black, velvet, shawl collar and concealed pockets. This original Fifties’ coat is beautifully tailored with turn up cuffs to the sleeves. She is quite a heavy coat. Even in deepest winter, I doubt you would need many layers underneath to feel cosy and warm in this fully lined vintage classic.

Approximate Size: Bust 34″; Waist 27-28″

Condition: Excellent for her age – which is more than anyone can say about me!  She’s 60-70 years old so I’m surprised that she is in such good condition. In the past, the buttons must have been moved to allow more room in the waist as there is some evidence of their original position but, with the patterning and texture of the wool, it is not easy to see this.  I have just noticed that, when the buttons were moved, their back, securing buttons on the inside, were left in place so the removal of these may remove any extra fibres visible on the front of the coat.

This vintage 1950s coat is a stunning example of the period and would certainly channel your the inner Grace! I apologise for the photograph which really doesn’t do this beautiful coat justice so it’s,definitely, worth visiting Winchester to see her in her full glory!
