1910s Walking Coat Edwardian Walking Coat Antique Coat Silk Wool Challis Downton Abbey Coat Titanic Era Pleated Coat Museum Quality Pie. This is a stunning Edwardian walking coat! The exterior is a lightweight challis of silk and wool in gray. The lining is lighter gray silk with a small dot pattern and the attached neck scarf and belt are darker gray with 3 ball fringe trim. This is a large coat with a ton of fabric, please bear with me as I try to describe it from the collar down! There is a small, squared, fold over collar made of the darker gray silk, it has tiny ball fringe. There is a matching neck scarf, it is attached on each side and is sewn to the coat lining from the collar along the shoulder seam. The front of the coat falls straight down from the shoulder, there is a hip pocket on each side. The sleeves are large, square cut with a single point where they are gathered. They hang very loosely with a wide, statement cuff. The front has a hidden button closure. The back of the coat is pleated from behind the collar. The pleats are sewn at the back of the waist. There is a silk belt (matches the scarf and collar) attached to each side of the sewn pleats. The belt is sash style with small ball fringe at the ends. The interior of the coat, including sleeves, is completely lined in pale gray silk with a dot pattern. There is a grosgrain ribbon belt sewn behind the waist (inside the coat), when tied it cinches the back of the coat to the body to exaggerate the smallness of the waist and poof the pleats behind the back. There are numerous, small light brown spots on the coat, a few small moth holes and some staining inside the cuffs. Issues are subtle and hide in the draped fabric. The coat is strong and wearable, presents beautifully! Cost is based on total weight. This does not apply to fragile items that may have to be packed separately.
