c. 1947 red, cotton gabardine jacket w/ petal collar. What an incredible jacket! Great, punchy, stop sign red color. Structured shoulders typical of the era. Hook & eye closure top the petal collar, leaving an open bust. Tie & snap waist closures. Sleeves meet with an embossed metal button. Label reads “Swansdown”. Original ads from 1947 in photos. Has been dry cleaned.
Issues: Overall very sturdy condition. May have a few surface marks but nothing noticeable. The jacket is in incredible shape.
