Rare 1970s Red Snakeskin & Fox Gucci Trench Coat

This just might be the holy grail of all Gucci coats! It is extraordinary and amazingly beautiful. The coat is made of a hand dyed snakeskin in a beautiful, rich red hue. It has its original, detachable fox fur collar that is also dyed to match exactly and is wonderfully thick and supple. I love that you can remove it - it makes the trench that much more versatile and extends the season you can wear it. It buttons to close and you cinch the waist in with the matching tie belt. The belt ups the glam factor even more as each end is finished in a gold tone metal stylized "G"! This is a very rare piece and appears unworn. The snakeskin is weather-coated and everything, including the collar is lined in a custom silk with the seventies Gucci logo embroidered throughout. Really an amazing and fabulous statement piece. Its modern equivalent would retail in the tens of thousands. Excellent, museum quality condition

Fully lined in a iridescent silk lining with the Gucci name embroidered throughout. It closes with buttons that are embossed with Gucci at the front. The fur collar snaps into place and is backed in Gucci embroidered silk lining. The original tie belt is present and its ends are finished with stylized gold toned metal Gs. Finished buttonholes.
