Vintage 1920s Black Wool Coat, Persian Curly Lambswool Swing Car Coat, Size Small


This is a vintage 1920s black lambswool coat with label Fred Benioff Furs (Spokane, Stockton, Oakland, San Francisco). The coat is a slightly swing coat style with one large button in front and a smaller button at the neck. The lambs wool isn't perfect, and I've tried to show the missing/worn areas mainly under the arms, the upper back, along the front opening near the button and a few other places that aren't as visible. The coat is fully lined and it is in great shape. The coat does not have a size indicated, but it is a small size. It fits a modern size 4 woman perfectly.

Measurements as follows, taken on the outside with the coat laying flat:
Chest - 38" conservatively
Shoulder width - 18" but hard to judge
Sleeve Length - 24", again hard to tell for sure.
Length in back from collar base - 37"

The label in the collar is positioned upside down, as was the case with higher end coats of the day, to allow it to read correctly when draped over a chair.
