A piece to behold. This original 1940's cream woven wool jacket, embellished with gold sequins, gold bugle beads, gold glass beads and gold faceted circular studs, is a true masterpiece to behold and the perfect piece to add to your tailored wardrobe.

This jacket showcases the iconic craftsmanship and design of the era. The jacket is fully lined in cream rayon.
