Could have come straight out of a Marilyn Monroe movie. Created at the height of Hollywood Glam (the mid 1950's) is this stunning pastel blond natural Mink fur evening wrap.
Crafted by the world famous Australian Furrier..Cornelius Furs of Sydney (1943-2000), it is another beauty from the vast collection of my Mother-in-law, who at 94 no longer feels the need to wear Mink.
With 10 lovely detachable Mink fur tails adding extra glam and elegance, it is fashioned from carefully matched Mink pelts in a lovely pastel honey color, with all the natural subtle color variants you would expect in a garment of this quality. The label says A Cornelius Original, Sydney.
The stole measures 14 1/2" deep and 63 1/2" in length + an extra 7" at each end if the tails are included. The shoulder area has been crafted to follow the contours of the back and upper arms, making it easy to drape.
The Mink fur is luxuriously silky and damage and wear free and the beige silk lining is also in very good condition, without any damage or marks. The Stole closes with two wire hook and loop fastenings to hold it in perfect place.
Bought mid 1950's it has had very little wear and has always been stored in a fur bag in a wardrobe. It has not been dry cleaned.
