Wonderful single button wool morning coat. Charcoal grey in color.
These jackets did not change very much in overall style over several decades, but judging my the construction and the trim, as well as mention of the maker in a 1919 journal, I date this piece to the 1910s-1920s.
As Built By
Joseph Meltsner & Son

Lovely condition overall with some damage to the lining of both sleeves (one side worse than the other), as shown. Can be worn as is or repaired if desired. No other flaws to note! This is a beautiful jacket.
