Excellent. This coat is in remarkable condition for its age.

No notable flaws that I can see. There is one little pull with a couple of broken strands at the front inside flap. So small it doesn't show up in a photograph.

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws above and beyond this will be highlighted here.



En pointe period styling in this incredible coat. So difficult to find a coat of this calibre in such great condition. She's really special - never had one before with such iconic detail. Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.

We now offer an alternate express delivery service via DHL for those of you who want your packages more expediently. This option is currently delivering packages within a seven-day timeframe from collection.

This item is within our selling stock. In the unlikely event that two buyers purchase this item concurrently, payment will be immediately refunded to the latter purchaser. We apologise in advance should this rare circumstance arise.

We make every effort to post your item within 1-3 days of payment. Should a circumstance arise where we are unable to post within this timeframe (eg we are away at a fair) we will contact you immediately.

If you want to upgrade to express postage or require insurance, please contact us prior to checkout and we will adjust the rates accordingly.


Yes we do offer flexible layby/layaway options and are open to negotiation as to the time period. Obviously, the more expensive the item the longer the time you will have to finalise payment. Contact us to see how accommodating we can be :)
