Vibrant Purple 1880's Skate Coat

From the seller:


Rare vibrant purple wool ladies fancy winter sporting jacket, with wonderful exaggerated period fashion details. Fitted shape with top stitched shaping seams. Wonderful dome shaped faceted jet buttons, missing two on front, angled side faux pockets angled slightly to the back. Flared back with two more of the domed buttons, these could be moved to the front and I have two close match buttons that i will include in the sale, these could be put at the back. Unlined, with strange little silk backed v shaped vestigial hood thing at the back. In good antique uncleaned as found condition, the wool is a plush that is stretchy a bit.


Chest measures 34", waist 24", length 26", sleeves 20".

From Me:

...I feel the need to go buy bright purple wool coating now....
