Vintage Autumn Haze Ankle Length Mink Coat - Size 16/18 - Orig Retail $12,000
AGE: C.1980 or so
ITEM: Okay, I'm a size 16, 5' 9-1/2" tall and this mink coat, when I put on, drops to my ankles. I don't know if you'd call it floor length but ankle length it is. There is so much mink in this coat that I swear you could make a blanket out of it! Two front pockets - toggle ties. The sleeves are balloony and the cuffs are elasticized for a tight fit at the wrist.
In an attractive color of brown that I think is Autumn Haze, this coat is a consignment item from a lady who has left with me for going on 10 years now. So I think I own it by now! It has been carefully stored in a cool area and before that, in a cold storage vault.
The retailer was The Fur Center, a well known furrier here in St. Louis. St. Louis, in the winter, gets pretty cold and we all wear our furs here - at times, they are a necessity (especially when the heat fails in a cold snap).
CONDITION: Excellent! The fur is soft and supple and the interior lining (satin) complements the coloring of the fur. The original owners initials are present - EEG. According to the owner, the coat was an anniversary gift from her husband and though she liked it, she wore it only 3 times in its life. She preferred her shorter silver grey mink coat which I will list in due course.
SIZE: When I was a 16, I swam in it. Now that I'm a little bigger, it still seems a bit big but it sure does the trick of keeping a person warm.
WEIGHT: Heavy! All that mink does weigh a bit much so the shipping is going to be hefty - it's going to take a large box to ship this beauty! I'll put shipping as FREE - I will figure the cost into the final sale price.
FINAL COMMENTS: If you want absolute particulars, just e-mail me. The original retail was $12,000 and when I first offered the coat, the consignor wanted $3,000 firm. I want to see this item go to a good home so that it is properly taken care of. With all the fur that is in the coat, it can be re-cut and re-shaped and re-designed. Overall, it's FABULOUS!
