Made in the most delicious shade of apple green silk velvet, this original 1920's French coat, is a rare piece to behold.
Her elegant shoulder line is set off by a cross over front design from which a mock neck scarf hangs along the right hand side, and is worn as a scarf feature, which drapes across the front of the neckline and left shoulder. Her full length bell cut sleeves are cut with one side slightly longer to accentuate the wideness, and are decorated with musquash fur details. Her straight line cut completes this wonderful coat in an iconic Art Deco cut. The coat is fully lined in black satin.
