A stunning 1920s cocoon coat! Soft brown velvet with a large fur (beaver?) shawl collar. The ends of the sleeves are embroidered with a (what I'm interpreting as) pussy willow design. The coat closes with one large button and a small snap at the top. Fully lined. A truly remarkable piece of history that continues to make a fashion statement!
Label: Mme. Nagla Mogabgab
Best fits: M/L/XL
Condition: Overall very good-excellent. The coat is in amazing condition considering its age. There is some fading on one side (see photos), but the fading is gradual creating a ombre effect. There are some extremely minor, small scuffs to the velvet.
