Vintage 1970s long black velvet coat with princess seams in the front, and square pleat at back hem. Double breasted with 2 rows of plastic buttons made up of 'squiggle' shapes. Fully lined. This is a stunning coat. Any variation in the color in the images is due to reflections – there is no variation in the velvet.
The coat is in very good condition. There are a few areas where the nap of the velvet is crushed. I believe the coat was folded and the buttons caused impressions. It is likely that these marks can be steamed out. Slight discoloring to lining under one armhole (visible in bottom left of last photo). No other flaws with lining.
No manufacturer's label. One label reads 'dry clean only.' ILGWU label.
