This lovely old jacket is made of a luxurious feeling, silver colored fur that is very soft to the touch. The color variations are beautiful. The hairs that appear lightest, almost white at the tips are dark gray next to the hide and the various shades of gray intermix with hints of brown. I believe this is natural, un-dyed rabbit fur. The fur lies flat and the pelts seem well matched. The fur on the collar is a little ruffled, either by design or from wear. It has a simple, wide lapel collar with flexible stiffeners in the lapels and it has full length, un-cuffed sleeves. It has side seam pockets with leather edging on the inside edge. It has two front closures. They are interesting spring clips with opposing hooks. It is fully lined with a black satin-like fabric. There is a label in the inside seam that reads; Fourrure de - Fur Origin - France. The label is sewn into the seam, upside down to the coat, and the other edge of the label in loose and not hemmed. It is truly a beautiful coat with signs of being a quality piece. There is a label at the neck that reads “15” which I assume to be a vintage size 15. It came from an estate that had a few other coats from this this period, around the 1970’s, with sizes ranging from 12 to 14.
It measures about 15” across the back from seam to seam and it’s probably about a 38” bust. The sleeves measure about 23” long from shoulder seam to wrist. It’s about 33” in length measuring from the nape of the neck at the back (below the collar edge). It is in very nice, used condition with light wear. As previously mentioned, the collars fur doesn‘t lie as smooth and flat as the rest of the fur and I don’t know if it was intentionally fashioned that way or if it is from use. The perfume of the previous wearer is still evident. I have not had this cleaned.
