Turn of the Century Winter Coat

From the seller:

ANTIQUE Victorian Coat Black Wool Mourning? Goth Steampunk FANCY TRIM 1800s ...

Quite remarkably, this is in very good condition. There is some pulling and separation of the black
lace on the hem... all repairable - not serious degradation.

Across shoulders 15"
Aross Chest 15"
Sleeve 23"
Vertical 33"

Quite a small size.

Black wool, with lace trim and fancy work, and fully lined.
we have found a few pinholes ..but in general, quite good condition.

From Me:

My apologies for not posting sooner. My first week at my new job has been very, very busy!

The trim and the pleats on the inside of the elbow indicate this is an Edwardian coat.


  1. Congratulations on your new job! I hope things there settle down soon.

    1. I get the impression my new job will be periods of calm in between full blown hurricanes. :-) Which is fine by me - I so far adore the people and really like the work- it will just keep me on my toes!
