Stunning 1950s Unlabeled Deep Brown Mink Jacket Bolero w Braided Silk Cord Detailing

This is an incredible cropped fur jacket and the workmanship is of the best possible quality. The design is typical of the furs being produced during this time period and this one is exceptional. It would definitely been a high end piece and the quality it was made with still shows even after some 65 odd years later. It is made from a dark natural mink. The pelts are still very soft and supple and have a bit of a reddish undertone to them in certain lights. It is cut with rounded shoulder and an almost cape like feel through the body. Each sleeve is wide and full. It has been constructed from rows of the fur that are interspersed with rows of a black braided silk cording. The cording has its own incredible pattern worked through it and the final effect is beautiful. The collar is set high and wider across the neck. It is a beauty and a stunning vintage fur. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a deep brown silk and closes at the front with covered fur hooks. Hidden pocket along one inner seams edge and has the original owns name subtly embroidered on the interior lining. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. The easy cut should fit a range of sizes

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.
