This cocker spaniels dog novelty print cotton late 1940s or early 1950s tunic-style blouse, artist’s smock top, or housecoat features the darling doggie duo themselves (in cute plaid coats!), plus various accessories like toys, dishes, leashes, and of course, dog bones! The gold, green, and white dogs print really stands out against the black background of the top. Below the split-front mandarin collar, the dark green, molded plastic buttons that fasten the smock in front have a textured, polka dots design. The tunic or smock has a gently flared, loose-fitting shape, with gathers adding fullness below the flat, front shoulder yoke, and at the top of each sleeve, where it meets the shoulder. Speaking of sleeves, check out the unusual shape of those sleeves! Curved seams create a full, rounded section above each tiny turned back cuff. The top has one side seam pocket pockets. The lightweight, plain weave cotton fabric is unlined. This circa late 1940s novelty print smock top is in very good condition, with two small, very faint (nearly impossible to photograph--although we tried!) yellowed areas, one of which is hidden by the overlap of the button placket when it is worn (see close-up photos). The black background is a tiny bit lightened from normal laundering, but not significantly faded.
