    I think this is early 20th c.

    IMG_9100.JPG I bought it from a VFG member and filed it in my Chanel group. No, I don't think it is Chanel, perhaps an inspiration for her. Any thoughts?

    It is a little difficult to see the details. But I get a sense of early 1920s. 1922-1923. Can you show a close up of the trim? Also it is a lightweight wool? Or?

    I have seen gimp braid with the dingle balls on a late 1860s dress, so that's possible, but I don't like the round neckline and the slanted seams that lead to those shallow pockets for the 1920s - those both strike me more as 1940s features. It looks more c. 1940ish to me...

    Hmm this is overkill but you can see the braid.

    Ha ha I will still stick to my 1920s dating for now. Perhaps later in the decade than 1922...maybe 1925 ish and looks rather French. I have no problem with the pockets being shallow as I have seen and had 1920s jackets with similar shallow pockets in front. Of course I cannot handle it in person, and could be totally wrong! I do think the length is a little short for 1920s but the woman could have been short waisted or petite.
