Vintage Mahogany Female Mink Coat Medium Size 10 Alexandor Furs Montreal

$695.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a beautiful quality vintage mink coat made in a dark mahogany colour.  The coat is made of female mink 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 Alexandor Furs, a Montreal fur design boutique - you know that if it was bought at Alexandor that it is a high quality fur.  The coat is made in a classic style with a squared collar that can be worn up or down and a neckline that can be worn partially open or closed with one or two of the snap and loop closures.  There is a pocket built into either side.  The coat is fully lined in brown satin - the original owner's initials are embroidered into the side of the lining.  The pelts are beautifully matched - please note the back of the coat. 

Age: Unknown, but probably 1990s

Label: Alexandor Furs Montreal.  A.J. Alexandor was located on Peel St. in the heart of the downtown, but closed its doors in 2008.  Alexandor had a long history dating back to Alexander Jacob Alexandor president  and founder of the business, which was started in 1899, and a member of a family with a long history in the fur business.  As an aside, Alexandor’s mother was a descendant of Johannes Sebastian Bach, the musician.

Color: Mahogany brown

Material: Mink fur

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a size 10, please rely on the following exterior measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fur into account (compare measurements with a similar fur coat that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):

Shoulders:  15” across from seam to seam

Sleeves: 24” from the shoulder seam to the cuff

Sleeve inseam: 16”

Bust:  36”/37” around, taken under the arms

Waist:  44” around

Condition:  It is in excellent condition - the fur is fresh and strong and has very good glaze. This coat was acquired from the liquidation of a long established furrier whose owner was retiring, so this coat kept in cold storage - it looks to have seen very little use and has been well cared for over its life.  

Excellent quality mink coat in a very attractive dark mahogany colour -  This is a wonderful mink coat, sure to bring many years of warmth and pleasure!
