This opulent 1930's deep purple silk velvet coat with fox fur covered pockets, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her shoulder line is accented by shoulder pads sewn in along each shoulder seam. Her wide cut sleeves boast small pleated details along the shoulders. Her wonderful straight line cut, is accented by two front pockets with external fox fur details and lined in sumptuous velvet. The backline of the coat, boasts a central pointed seam to the centre of the shoulder blades, drawing the eye to the incredible bias cut back panels, that drape elegantly across the figure.
Lined in silk, every detail of this piece, showcases the craftsmanship of the era.

Condition: This coat is in near perfect vintage condition. With some light and natural impression to the silk velvet, some more apparent on the left hand side top of the shoulder, this is a natural process to velvet. Some light wear to the silk lining along the back of the neckline, with two mends to strengthen the silk.
These minor issues are in no way apparent when the coat is being worn, and only apparent under closer inspection. 

Fabric: Silk velvet, fox fur, silk lined
