Unbelievable vintage coat fully embroidered with medieval figures, scroll work, florals and medallions. The aqua embroidery is a magnificent contrast to the paprika red background. The fabric is a cross between a very fine corduroy (tiny ribbing) and velveteen. It is lined in a rust taffeta. A wonderful well preserved piece. You just need to find a very cool button for the shoulder closure!
A tough one for me to date, I'm saying 30s but happy to hear anyone's educated opinion on this.
Condition: See last image. The coat crosses over and fastens with two buttons, one at each shoulder, one interior and one exterior...both buttons are missing. There is a tiny slit in the shoulder seam. Fading down one side, slight, you can see it in the embroidery.

The coat closes with two buttons at the shoulders and an attached wrap tie at the waist.
