1920s Wrap Coats

Bookmark and Share

I have exciting news! I have procured a very large collection of pre 1930s fashions from a local collector here in Toronto. I am slowly going through the 16 boxes of amazing vintage clothing, many items dating back to 1880. 

I can't tell you how fabulous this is for a vintage dealer - I feel like I hit the jackpot. Stay tuned dear readers as I list some extraordinary items in the coming weeks and months.

This first piece is a 1920s wool wrap coat. Significant outerwear for women in the 1920s, these coats often have a beautiful focus of an extra large button to wrap or close on the sides. This stunning dark brown patterned coat has wool weaved trim and large collar. No sooner did I list it than a customer from the UK bought it. I know it is going to a great new home!
