1950s Rare Scalloped Edge Chinchilla Cape

A wonderful early Chinchilla cape that feel like it just stepped out of a time machine! There is no sign of drying at all and the fur looks like it has never been worn. Remarkably soft and light it is a very glamorous and luxurious piece! Excellent condition

Fully lined in a grey silver silk. One fur hook at the neck to close. No signs of wear to the fur at all. Hand finished inside and monogrammed "Stella Sharp" (which in our opinion is a pretty kick ass name). Note the photos have a touch of a sepia tone to them - in person it is a mix of pale to deep greys.

47" from tip tip when laid flat and open
17.5" from collar to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED

Item# C226
