Purple Bolero Jacket

Purple Bolero Jacket
C.1901. A nice purple-blue wool/cotton blend bolero jacket that would dress up a plain shirtwaist skirt combination.
The bolero features tucks at the front and sleeves. The collar is made out of a creme coloured satin with a lace covering. Lace also decorates the front edges of the jacket. The sleeve cuffs are scalloped. I think that this was originally a bodice and then was renovated not long after into a bolero jacket.
The jacket is lined with striped fabric and is fully boned 10 whalebones. 'HH' is written in old ink on the inside neck.
Measurements: shoulders 12" but shoulders of 13" could fit into it as well as the sleeves have a slight puff at the shoulders. Bust 36", Waist 24"
