AUTHENTIC VINTAGE FUR

Mink Fur Cape

 

 

Amazing champagne-coloured mink fur cape with huge collar from the 1960s.

 

Description

This lightweight cape is composed of champagne-coloured plush real mink fur. It features a huge fur backed collar which can be worn up or laying on top of shoulders, a gathered shoulder section and front slits for arms when closed. The cape closes with one hook and eye, has two hidden lined slit pockets at front and is fully lined in champagne-coloured silk satin. Into the left pocket there is the "Fur Label Authority" label sewn-in. This label was added to fur garments for consumer protection since 1956. "It assured consumers that the furs complied with the guidelines set forth in the Fur Products Labeling Act and were manufactured under fair labor standards. This label included an identifying number that matched the number on the invoice which again required the name and origin of the animal to be included" (courtesy of furwise.com).

The cape ends approximately at the hip bone and has no monogram. The fur is glossy, soft and supple. A very versatile piece – perfect for any formal event or wedding or to dress up a casual look.

This cape is in excellent vintage condition. The lining is very clean with just a few tiny marks (see picture 8).
