Spiegel Front Quarter Horsehide leather jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281050512045

This vintage long half-belt was sold by Spiegel in the 1950s.  It is made of front quarter horsehide with a sheepskin lining. It has an action bi-swing back,  belt back, two flapped front pockets, with handwarmer pockets and a diagonal zip chest pocket.  The sheepskin lining extends three quarters down with the remainder, and the sleeves, being quilted rayon. The jacket has a conmar zipper, but the zipper tape has rotted at the bottom, so it will need to be replaced.
Chest: 23″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″    PhotobucketPhotobucket
