1880s coats

Postby Sarah F » Sun Jan 27, 2013 1:50 am

Hello all,

I am looking for images of original 80s winter coats. I have looked around online, to no avail. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Sarah

Surprised there wasn't much on Pinterest, but a Google image search for "1880s winter coat" seemed to turn up plenty?

The Met Museum has a good search feature. In 'what' I asked for coats and in 'when' I asked for 1800-1900 and it returned, amongst others, some Victorian ladies' Quidditch outerwear.

Looks like someone was using some blankets.

It's wonderful, isn't it?! I love the pointy hood. One of my coats for next winter will feature one now, and I'm delightfully baffled by the pompom. I guess the hood is just decorative and a warm hat was worn.
