1940's Eisenberg Victorian Style Capelet Princess Coat


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! Best fits a modern size 4 and might also work for a size 6 with attention to the following measurements which were taken on the outside of the coat. Bust 38" Waist 29" Full Hips 43" Sleeve Length From Underarm to Cuff 18" Shoulder Length From Sleeve Seam to Seam 17" Total Length From Shoulder to Hem 48" Length From Shoulder to Waist 15.5" Capelet measures 14" long at the back.
