Vintage 1950s Christian Dior Pastel Mink Stole
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely quality mink fur stole made in a beautiful medium brown color. I believe this is referred to as pastel mink. The piece is made in a rectangular shape, tapered towards the ends. The piece is lined in silk. There are three pockets on the lining, one of these has the name of the owner embroidered on it. The small pocked which is on the top edging of the stole has the other label in it with the Holt Renfrew information and the date of 1959.
The stole measures 72 inches in length along the longer side and 68 inches along the shorter side with a center width of 16 1/2 inches at the back. The pelts are very well matched - this is a quality stole.
The year is marked in the interior label 1954.
Label: Christian Dior Original - in Canada Exclusively with Holt Renfrew & Co Limited.
It's 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 in a lovely color - beautiful quality!
