Vera Maxwell Vintage Coat Rare 1940's Double Breasted Cashmere

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an exquisite, rare vintage 1940's coat from designer Vera Maxwell. It is in excellent condition and comes from a prominent Northwest estate of high end designer mid century clothing. The coat has a full skirt, fitted waist, dolman sleeves and is fully lined. It has no content label but appears to be cashmere or a cashmere blend. Everything from this estate was in pristine condition as the original owner rarely if ever wore anything she purchased. I would estimate this beautiful vintage coat to be a modern day US size 8/10.

BUST: 38"
WAIST: 28"
LENGTH from nape of neck: 49"
