An elderly lady boarded this magnificent ocean liner for its maiden voyage, her hands were protected with this gorgeous muff! It was a comfort her, no doubt, that in her most prized possessions were in the two zippered compartments! AS SEEN IN THE MOVIE TITANIC! Not only was this a fashion statement, the muff also warmed the hands with compartments that acted like a clutch bag. Once the hands came out of the muff, the intricately braided loop was placed over the wrist for carrying much as one would carry a purse, or clutch bag, safe and sound.
Measuring 14” wide and 16” long, there is ample room to store treasures in one of the two zippered compartments. The lining is a silky type fabric, and trimmed with quite intricate braid. The same braid serves as the loop to hang from wrist.
Considering its age, it is in nice very old condition. There are no odors and the fur is soft, supple with no shedding. There’s a little unnoticeable wear in a few places along the edges, and one of the zipper compartments has an exterior tear that does not compromise the interior of the pouch.
