Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

What a stunner! Eisenberg is best known for producing high quality costume jewelry though they also created clothing until the 1950's. This 1940's black wool coat has a classic princess coat silhouette with the addition of strong 1940's shoulders and a Victorian style capelet. It is fully line with a cherry red silk crepe which is also visible on the underside of the capelet. Every movement in this coat provides a peak of the red lining adding visual interest and a little drama. The detailed passementerie decoration along the edge of the capelet is not only beautiful but also serves to weigh it down on a windy day. The condition of this coat is unbelievable ... excellent!
