$250.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is an excellent quality mink fur cape stole that was bought at Julius Garfinckel & Co of Washington D.C. - Garfinkel catered to a wealthy clientele, so you know that this is a quality fur.  The piece is made in a jacket form, but, of course, without sleeves.  The fur is in a light brown colour that I believe is called “Dawn”.  There is a pocket built into either side and there are no closures.  The piece is lined in a tan satin fabric that is embroidered with the original owner’s name.  

Age: early 1960s 

Label: Julius Garfinckel & Co of Washington D.C.  Inside the pocket there is a label that reads “Fur Label Authority Consumer Protection Manufactured Under Fair Labor Standards Z679215”.  This particular label was used as of 1956 as a guarantee of authenticity.

Sizing:  The stole should fit a range of sizes medium to large - please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account that this isn't a fitted garment:

Shoulders:  18" across, approximated

Bust:  38" around with no gap

Length:  23"

Condition:  It is in very good condition with no noted wear or other defect. 

The fur is fresh and odor free - this fur was well stored over the years.

This is a gorgeous mink stole with well matched pelts in a lovely colour - beautiful quality!
