Up for your consideration is a one of a kind custom designed vintage award-winning Bill Talidis custom designed, stand out in a crowd, powder blue sheared Beaver Cape/Coat with powder blue fox fur trim. This is a magnificent one of a kind masterpiece designed by Talidis for a woman in Chicago and only owned for one year then resold to the current owner who has had this sheared beaver fur master piece professionally cleaned and stored annually. It feels so soft and supple just like a teddy bear! This is by far the most unique, softest most magnificent fur I have ever seen! There is a navy blue accent that runs around the bottom 409" perimeter. There are two black velvet lined pockets and white satin woven cording with matching sheared beaver powder blue pom poms which tie together forming a sleeve. Coat or Cape secures in the front with a hook and eye closure. The perfect ultra soft fur coat for a night out at the opera, worn with your favorite pair of jeans or to cuddle up on the coach with your favorite book; a magnificent, jaw-dropping must see and be seen in Fur Coat custom designed by Bill Talidis! The left side lining approximately 7 ¼" below the cord is a small stain and a very faint staining on the inside nylon lining at the upper portion of the neckline which is very hard to detect and only mentioned for accuracy purposes. I do have extra photos for any serious buyer. Please contact me if you are interested in seeing these extra photos.
