This is a vintage mink fur coat made in a dark brown colour that is referred to as “mahogany”. The fur is made in a “chevron” pattern, consisting of “mink paw”, also known as “pieced” mink. The coat is very well constructed with the paws being very well matched and the skins being reinforced on the leather side with black cloth. It is made in a classic style - rounded, high set collar that can be worn up or down, long sleeves, rounded shoulders, mid-calf length and with a slit pocket built-in to either side. It does up with a hook and eye at the neck and three hooks and loops down the front. The coat is fully lined in a black colored taffeta fabric.
