Just in time for the cold northern hemisphere winter, I am listing this stunning Ladies Furrier made Natural (Real) Blue Fox Fur hip length Jacket.
Styled in Australia from beautifully matched pelts of Finnish (Arctic) Blue Fox fur, it is from my mother-in-law's large selection of stunning furs. They were collected over a long lifetime (she is 94) and this one was purchased in Sydney in mid 1970's.
Fashioned by Saga for Levy Furs of Centrepoint Sydney, it is fully labelled and marked size 16. That is equivelant to app. size 12-14 USA and size 16-18 UK (Medium to Large). Measurements are..Length 27", Across back (under sleeve)..22 1/2", Across front..22 1/2", Full width (front to front) 47", Sleeve length (outer) from shoulder to cuff..24".
The Details..All pelts are silky white and perfectly matched, with the a slight dark brown edge used as a high-light in the top half of the jacket. The fur tips also have a hint of the same dark brown, which gives the slightly 'silver' sheen that the fur is named for. It is a truly unique fashion piece made from carefully selected fur pelts without any side seams. The inside is finished with a high quality grey leather trim and a cream/beige poly satin pleat edged lining. The 'invisible' inside pockets are also finished with the pinch pleating and show no wear. There are two invisible outer side pockets finished with a beige velvet lining (which is also wear-free) and 3 wire hook fastenings on the front edges. This is an edge to edge coat and is not designed to 'wrap' across the front.
It is pure elegance.
There is no visible wear as it was only worn 2 or 3 times. The pelts are supple and in very good condition. The coat has always been stored in a linen bag in a wardrobe and apart from a few tiny age spots on the lining it is in almost perfect Vintage condition.
It has no odours and has not been dry cleaned.
