Original Late 1930s 30s Early 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Olive Green Boucle Coat With Sailor Style Fur Collar

£175.00

This stunning coat was made from an olive coloured boucle wool in the late 1930s. It is cut in a classic princess shape with padded shoulders and a darted waist. The sleeves have wonderful volume at the top and terminate in a tight fitting cuff. The collar is adorned with fur and cut in a triangular sailor style at the back. At the front it runs down into long placket to the waist. At the waist, the coat closes with a single press stud and a mock button. Inside, the coat is lined in taupe crepe and has a maker’s label for Thornton Varley Ltd of Hull. There are also too fabric ties, which wrap around the wearer’s body and thread through the fabric loop at the waist. This draws the coat into a slimmer mid 1930s silhouette. However if the coat is worn without the ties, it fits more like a traditional princess coat with a slight flare to the skirt.

The coat is in good condition, however there is some wear to the fur collar as pictured which would benefit from reinforcing as well as damage to the lining. There is also a hole to the boucle on the inner placket that is not visible when the coat is done up as well as a few near invisible darns elsewhere. The original belt is no longer present.

Shipping Policy

We will always send your item by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, Parcelforce or another similar courier so that we are able to track your package and confirm safe receipt.

Please always ensure that your address details are correct at the time of purchase as we will be unable to refund items sent to the wrong address. Please note that we will only dispatch an item once payment has been confirmed and never before, therefore certain types of payment such as echeques will incur a delay as we will wait for the funds to clear.

In the event that an item is returned to us through no fault of our own we will give you the opportunity to have the package resent, however you will be expected to bear any additional costs.

Please note that Royal Mail will not send items recorded to an international PO Box number and that if you ask us to send to such an address and your item gets lost, you are still liable for the cost of the item and its postage.

The purchaser will be expected to pay any local taxes and customs charges that may apply to an item and Black Sheep Antiques will always declare the item’s value as the original purchase price.

Refund Policy

Our business is in old and beautiful clothing, this is great because what we offer will often be rare and sometimes unique but this does mean that we will be unable to offer you replacements most of the time.

The description that we use to list a product will always be honest and we will try to describe and photograph any faults that may affect the enjoyment of the item. However we must stress that these are period vintage garments and as a result they will often show signs of general wear. In fact, it is often what makes these items so very unique.

As a result we do not offer refunds or returns unless items have been materially misdescribed. Please ensure that you check all measurements carefully and feel free to request additional measurements if required as we do not offer returns due to fit.
