1940s Beaded Velvet Swing Coat / Jacket
Fabulous 1940s beaded swing coat or jacket in black velvet with black and silver beads. Usually these beaded swing coats are wool, so this is the first one I have seen in velvet, and what soft lovely velvet it is. The jacket is fully lined in black rayon faille, and there is about a 1 1/2" by 1/2" stiff spot on the lining hem that doesn't show when wearing. Other than that, the jacket is in excellent wearable condition.
About a size medium, the measurements are approx. 17" across padded shoulders, 25" outside sleeve length, free bust, waist and hips, 28" length in front, and 31" length at center back.
