1940s Grey Boucle Swing Coat with Cuffed Bell Sleeves

Beautiful dove grey wool boucle swing coat closes at the neck with a huge round vintage button. Dolman style cuff-back bell sleeves.  Most of the fullness is below the bust line for a flattering fit yet great full swing.  Only in the 40s era do you see this level of expert tailoring.  Purchased from the daughter of the original owner, this coat was worn lovingly (see condition).

Note: Expert tailoring with rows of curved stitches that match up along the lower back and sleeves. Interior sleeves block the wind and cold, 'sleeve-within-a-sleeve'.  Slit front pockets.  Closes only at the neck with one large round button.

Condition:
Dusty look to the neckline, we have not attempted to clean. Tears in the lining under the arms and at the sides.  Refer to bottom row of images.

Measurements:
Size M even though the shoulder measurement seems small, the dolman style sleeves allow for a more generous fit, the waist is full.
Shoulders 14"
Sleeve Length is 3/4 length with flexibility in how large you turn back the cuffs.
Coat Length 29"
