    This little bolero jacket has gold leather fan appliques. Any thoughts about the age.

    Probably 1950s. What does the lining look like if it's lined?

    I should never post a photo without the garment in hand. It isn't where I thought it was "filed" so I'll have to look for it.

    Yes, it is lined, but I don't think it has shoulder pads.

    I am in awe of how you keep up with your inventory. I have some order, but it obviously isn't good enough. C

    The bolero jacket popped up today in the blouse closet.
    No shoulder pads.
    Rayon twill lining.
    Thanks for your help.

    I also see 1940's. Is there evidence that shoulder pads were removed/ Or maybe it was to be worn over a dress that had shoulder pads.

    I have seen gold leather or oilcloth appliques on velvet dresses before from that late 30s/early 40s period.

    No, it doesn't appear to have had shoulder pads.
    Jonathan, thanks, C
