Fabulous late Edwardian Jacket

From the seller:

A beautiful Victorian double-breasted woman's jacket made of black wool with ribbon applique trim through out. Very clean. A couple of condition issues. The satin lining on the collar is wearing. One twist on the applique needs to be reattached. One of the buttons on the collar is broken. A group of tiny holes at the waist on the front near the one button, probably from buttoning and unbuttoning. It is very clean, no spots.

Bust: 33"

Waist: 28"

Shoulder to shoulder: 11"

Sleeve: 24"

Back collar to bottom: 21"

From Me:

Although it's hard to tell, the inside styling would suggest a late teens rather than an earlier date for this jacket. I doubt it's Victorian based on the front closure as well.
