Natural Form Era Red Velvet Coat








From the seller:

A rich 1870’s dark red plush velvet bustled coat. The coat has dolman styled sleeves and is full length. It has a front hook and eye closure and is lined with a floral printed silk. The velvet fabric is in excellent condition. There is no discoloration just shadows created by the camera flash. There is wear and some splitting to the silk fabric on the neckline, shoulders and front opening. The coat is being displayed over a bustle cage that is not included. Shoulders 14 Bust 30 Waist 30 Length from shoulder to hem 55. Antique clothing is for display and should not be worn.

From Me:

This is one of those cases where I love the lining fabric more than the actual outfit fabric.
