Cute Green 1930's Jacket
From the seller:
Light weight medium wool jacket dating to the 1930s. Art Deco aesthetic with big leaf buttons on asymmetrical front closure single slash pocket trimmed in wide brown accent trim. In very good vintage uncleaned condition lined thru shoulders, the bottom of sleeves have loose hem, couple faint spots, wearable, would benefit from a dry cleaning.
Chest measures 36", waist 28", length from shoulders 25" sleeves 23"
Back in 1938, Queen Frocks advertised their services in the Madison Lake Times. :-)
Helen Hayes is the actress pictured in the upper left. I wanted to show this pattern because of the asymmetrical nature of the dress on the right - similar to the jacket above. It was a pretty common feature to have in the 1930's.
