Vintage Mahogany Female Mink Coat Medium Size 10 Alexandor Furs Montreal
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

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.
