Ruby Red Boucle Wool Nipped Waist Coat with Mink Tail Scarf Collar and Celluloid Ring with Rhinestones 1940s
Nearly fainted when this came to me.
A BRILLIANT red boucle wool 1940s coat with a gentle princess line, full cuffed sleeves. Button front, scarf wrap collar trimmed with mink tails. A celluoid oval open back ring was sewn onto one one shoulder but doesn't seem to work to hold anything, so I removed it and used it as a scarf ring. I'm not sure of how it was done originally but the scarves have no way to wrap to one side. Maybe there 2? The collar doesn't want to move to wrap the neck at all. At any rate, wow- it works amazingly this way! As shown it's missing a stone but I have one I'll pop into it. I was too excited to take pics! No holes, no stains. Lined with a changeable iridescent rayon taffeta. Hip pockets. No label.
This coat KILLS ME!!
