Rare and Stunning 1940s Coat in Cranberry Camel Hair with Lantern Sleeves and Astrakhan Lamb trim


  • Product Description

      This stylish coat is one of the most bold and rare pieces of 1940s outerwear I've offered. Exquisite in execution, this coat offers incredibly dramatic lantern sleeves, which can be worn full length, or tucked up into 3/4 length balloons - both styles are shown. The cranberry wool is a luxury blend of 60% camel with 40% wool is a rich hue for winter, and is set off with lustrously black Astrakhan lamb trim. The trim makes coils at the neckline, finished with golden rings and follows the line of the closure to the waist. There is more that rings that seam of the lantern sleeves. The waist ties closed, featuring to more golden rings. This beauty is unmistakably glamorous. You just don't see many coats with this much drama built in! It is fully lined in rayon satin.


      Because the coat ties closed, it is moderately flexible in fit.

      This coat was recently cleaned by my consignor, and feels fresh and lovely. The fur trim is supple and soft. There is one small repaired moth hole at the lower right front of the skirt, and when I get under the lining and hold the skirt to the light, I found about four more than are repaired, one other small holes, and three thin spots. I found one thin spot and two older repairs on the left sleeve, and one on the right. You do have to examine it to see - these- they do not standout. I've restitched a bit of the hem lining, but find no other internal flaws. Sturdy and stunning.
