Vintage Mink Fur Cape Julius Garfinckel Washington Dawn Brown Size M / L
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
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!
