This is a beautiful superior quality vintage full length mink coat made by Grosvenor Furs, a Canadian furrier recognized world wide for exceptional quality. Grosvenor ran the Harrod’s Fur Salon in London for a number of years. The coat is a medium brown color made of fully let out female Lunaraine mink pelts - female pelts as they are narrower and smaller and so more are required to make a coat. The resulting appearance, however, is fabulous - see the photo of the back of the coat and the effect created by the numerous matched pelts. Female pelts are lighter, more lustrous, softer and silkier than male pelts and generally cost 40% to 50% more.
The coat is made in a classic style with an open neckline, a medium width collar, full cut sleeves with elasticized cuffs and a pocket built into either side. The coat is fully lined in brown taffeta with one vest pocket and has a below the knee length. Age: Unknown, but probably late 1990s. The coat’s labels are Grosvenor Canada and sold by Harris Furs in Rhode Island.
No size is indicated, but this looks like it should fit a medium size. Some approximate exterior measurements for fit are: Length – 48”; Shoulders - 18”; Sleeves - 24” .
The coat is in good condition - the fur feels soft and strong and has very nice sheen. This coat appears to have seen very little use and has been well cared for over its life. This is a gorgeous superior quality mink coat, sure to bring many years of warmth and pleasure. This coat was last appraised for $7000, offered here for $700.
