1960s Mexican Leopard Print Pony Coat w Piped Leather Detailing

This is one of two leopard printed pi y hair jackets that I have in the shop this week that originate from Mexican during the 1960s or 70s. These would have been made by hand by local artisans for the tourist market and represent an important part of the artisanal history during this time period. This one has a double row of shiny buttons that run down the front and a very wide collar that is rounded off at its edges. The sleeves are long and the waist curves in slightly. The coat has a ton of swag to it and is amazing in person. I love the top set pockets on the hips. Each one is detailed with a patent leather piping that runs down dividing the pocket visually into three panels. This picks up on the patent covering the front buttons. The coat is not 100% perfect but its in great condition and still very wearable.

Lined in a silky black rayon and closes with the buttons at the front. One button is missing its cap. There is a small nick on the fur on the collar where the crease is and a small bald spot under one pocket. The coat is in as found condition and does have a slight vintage odor. The pelts are still supple and glossy. Should fit a range of sizes depending on how you like to wear your coat

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.
