Vintage 1940s Long Black Wool Tunic, Movie Costume

Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

Long wool overdress or calf length tunic with an old world feel. Would be suitable for either a man or woman depending on the look one is going for. Pulls over and has hook and eyes up the back.  Has leg slits at either side. Fully lined in what looks and feels like cotton to me.  Wide sleeves. My best guess as to age of this is 1940s. I have not seen a studio label in this but there is some sort of ID tag within that just says 40. Measurements below. This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Good to great vintage condition. Very wearable but does have flaws and signs of life. There are a few smallish holes, and some seams could do with a stitch or two. There is some wear around the collar. The material could be upcycled or repurposed as well. That wool is amazing.
Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..)  that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.
Measurements taken lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Shoulder to shoulder: 16.5"
Bust ( or chest): 44" 
Waist: undefined but approx. 46"
Hip: loose
Shoulder to bottom hem: 47"
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film.  Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier.  I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however.  That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
