Vintage Mink Coat Female Pelts Grosvenor Furs Canada Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a beautiful quality vintage mink coat made in a medium brown colour. The coat is made of female mink pelts - you can recognize female pelts as they are narrower and smaller and therefore more are required to make a coat. The resulting appearance, however, is fabulous - please note the photo of the back of the coat and the effect created by the numerous matched pelts. Female pelts are lighter, more lustrous, softer and silkier than male mink pelts and generally cost 40% to 50% more. The coat was bought at Grosvenor Furs, a Montreal furrier, known for exceptional quality - Grosvenor ran the Harrod’s Fur Salon in London for a number of years until it was closed in 1990. The coat is made in a classic style with an open neckline, a medium width collar with notched lapel, full cut sleeves with turned cuffs and a pocket built into either side. The coat is fully lined in brown taffeta and has a below the knee length.
