Vintage 1940s Black Velvet Opera Coat with Gold Silk Lining

The Black Velvet Emporium

Fantastic hip length opera coat from the 1940s in lush black velvet. Look at the beautiful gathered sleeve cuffs! Lovely rounded collar and three velvet covered buttons. Open from about the ribcage down. Large shoulders pads with the velvet pleated round them to the back. Fully lined in lovely gold silk ( or maybe a silk or rayon blend, its very fine). No label. Medium to large size I'd say.

Excellent near mint vintage condition.

Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip
this is an open front from about the ribs down so theres some play to these measurements.
Shoulder to shoulder: 18.5"
Armpit to armpit across bust: 48"
Waist: free
Shoulder to bottom hem: 31"
