This is a lovely quality ladies coat custom made most likely by a Canadian furrier for a customer. This coat is made of high pile wool, I’m unsure what type of wool, in an attractive medium brown colour. The coat is trimmed in mink fur along the neck, the front opening, the bottom, the side pockets and the cuffs. It is lined in brown taffeta that is interlined with insulation on the back of it for extra warmth and to protect against wind. It closes at the neck with a single button and there are two hooks lower down the front that also secure the coat closed. The sleeves of the coat are made in a raglan style in a shorter style that will allow one to show off one’s gloves, and the coat is cut to flare to the knee length hemline so that it falls in drapes. The back has three vertical seams with the centre seam above a deep pleat that adds to the attractive fall of the coat. It has a slash pocket built into either side. I’m unsure of its exact age, but my best guess would be 1980s.
