1930s Unlabeled Sheared Beaver Collared Evening Cape w Silk Lining
This lovely little piece has the easy glamour of the late twenties, early 1930s and is still in remarkable condition. I believe this is a sheared beaver and it is a deep ink black. It flares out from the shoulders and has a wide collar that runs down each side of the front. Inside it is lined in a beautiful printed black silk that combines a floral print and a chevron print within the silk. When it is on, you get glimpses of this as you move and it adds a lovely texture and contrast to the fur. The pelts are supple and the shearing technique used gives it an interesting matte effect so it almost has the feel of an ultra plush velvet. Very chic. Excellent condition with one note to review below.
Fully lined with silk with long ribbons of silk set along the inner edge of each side to put your arms through if needed. The lining is in perfect condition. I found one small slit in the fur along the seam on one shoulder that appears stable. No closures and sits on the shoulders so will fit pretty much any size
Length: 23" from neck to hem

I have a small collection of historically important, key designer labelled vintage furs and fur trimmed pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting on the site over the next couple of years until I have none left. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward and have not purchased anything for several years now. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go rather then sit in a cold storage unit. Fur coats are final sale.
