The linen is a woven, feels like a linen, perhaps a blend? Buttons are faceted. Front pockets that are hidden in the peplum (see photo that has sleeves in pocket).
    Any thoughts on era or maker? My art historian background makes me want to know every detail about every vintage piece I own :)

    Union label was used from 1938-1964.

    I agree with '50s and with Mary Jane about pulling up the collar and fastening the button. I own a Lilli-Ann wool jacket that is a little earlier that fastens three different ways by changing how it is buttoned and snapped:

    I lightened two of the pictures to show the detail - it's very dark black.

    FWIW I wouldn't call that a peplum, especially as there is no waist seam. It's simply fitted at the waist.

    (unless there is more flounce going on at the back, which we can't see)

    I agree with 1950s. It is not a blazer, it appears to be a suit jacket and surely once had a matching skirt.
