The subject of real fur here in the UK is HOT topic, as I had never owned one before now I have always tried to stay neutral as some of my frends views are on both sides of the debate. If one did come up for sale at the right price and in my size I did think that I would consider it. Last week I was offered a 3/4 length mink coat at the right price and in my size so my neutrally ended yesterday as I collected it ( a bad photo below as I decorating a room where I normally take my photos did not want to risk getting paint on it) It is a 3/4 length mink ( 34" shoulder to hem) do any of you agree with the date of 1940 /50 or can suggest a better date. Inside embroidered onto a small pocket are these letter is this a makers lable or the owner initials ? On the satin lining there are designs all over it like the one between the collars Thanks so much in advance Paul.
