#5443A - c. late 1940's Lenari Designed, New York Black "New Look" Plush Fancy Coat! I wish I knew the name of this great fabric. It's probably a wool and mohair blend with an incredible sheen. Very similar to the "Imported from France" fabrics used for the Lilli Ann Coats of the same era. VERY well made. VERY high quality!! Near Mint condition! Fabulous black braided trim double collar to wear up or down, and faceted jet black square buttons. Wide "circle" skirt with wide balloon-type sleeves with tighter cuffs (so you can push them up your arm a bit if you like). This coat would look terrific with a belt as well. This is what you can't find today in the stores. QUALITY! I can't stress that enough! Am I using enough exclamation points?? Pockets at sides. Measures: up to 39" bust, up to 33" waist, 43" long from shoulder to hem. NEW LISTING! Also Listed in the 1930-Today Section.
Approx. - SIZE 6, perhaps
8/10 (depending what you wear under)
