Very good vintage condition. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

To note: this coat feels crisp and doesn't look like it was worn much, but I found a few subtle imperfections under scrutiny. 

A few scattered tiny holes (see photos). If you hold coat against a window, there may be a few more that aren't visible otherwise. Coat is fully lined so these don't go through to skin.

A couple little faint spots towards lower part of skirt.

Fabric is busy, colorful, and heavily textured, and flaws are well-masked and not noticed during wear.

Rare color and iconic appeal. There were no comps out there, so for the price of two solid black 40s princess coats, you get the unicorn. (Don't let me adopt her!)
