RARE Vintage 50s Lilli Ann mohair wool white swing coat. It has a soft white satin lining (wonderful condition). Look closer on the picture. This artifact is 70+ years old.
Relaxed fit cuffs and color, covered in, what looks like a handmade crystal patches sew on trim rhinestones appliqué with stones sequins beads. I bought this coat in San Diego approximately 20 years ago. It is in wonderful condition and has never been worn by me one spot inside is shown on the picture with measurement of the damage. It was very well preserved in a garment bag and was kept in a cedar closet the entire time.
My home is smoke and pet free. Only rarely, was it removed from its garment bag and admired for its beauty. I took pictures under different lights inside the house and by the window.
