1950's Lilli-Ann Elegant Ivory Creme Wool Shawl-Collar Swing Princess Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Lilli Ann was started in San Francisco in 1933 by Adolph Schuman, naming his company for his wife, Lillian. The company became known for their beautiful, elaborately designed suits and coats. This stunning garment is fashioned in a rich fully-lined ivory imported mohair wool. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; almost having a 3-dimensional feel. The construction is impeccable and has the type of seamed pattern work that one rarely sees today. The bodice has an amazing large shawl-collar plunge hourglass nipped-waist design. I adore the side bow-ties and lean, long sleeves. The flared, side-pockets, princess skirt finishes the coat with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe.
