Description

Short women's jacket made of dark brown short fur with black curly fur trim. The jacket has a wide stand up collar trimmed with the black curly fur. This trim extends all the way down the front edges of the opening, around the bottom edge, the edge of the sleeves and around the edges of the large triangular lapels. The lapels begin at the neckline and extend down to the bottom edge of the jacket. The jacket is closed by eight very large hook and eye closures that run from the top of the collar to the bottom of the jacket. The sleeves are full length. The inside of the jacket is lined in black silk with yellow writing and design. It reads "M. Haenselmann Fourreur Paris". The front bottom edge of the jacket comes down to a point, while the back bottom edge is shorter and straight across. The sleeve shoulders are noticeably puffy from the back.
