Vintage Ladies Coat Black Skunk Fur 1930s Big Shoulders Small
Fabulously shiny and sort of airy, the black skunk fur of this vintage coat is ethereal. It has the great big puffed shoulders typical of 1930s coats and it hooks in front with a large black Bakelite & silver 2 piece button.
2 slash pockets in front Lined in black satin. It was verified by a furrier to be monkey, even though it doesn't look like the classic long-haired style.
Remember measurements are taken on the outside; it doesn't necessarily mean it will fit those measurements ( yours I mean).
Marked Size: none
Sleeve from underarm: 17”
Sleeve from shoulder: 23”
Length (shoulder to hem): 38.5”
It has been professionally fur cleaned.
If you'd like to not feel guilty about wearing a vintage fur, read a great, well done article that appeared in Collectors Weekly by Lisa Hix, and reprinted on my Vintage Blog entitled "Should You Feel Guilty For Wearing Vintage Fur? Finally, the voice of reason- it’s actually “green” to wear vintage fur!"
It's the voice of reason, at last!
