Early 1970s Tourmaline Swing Coat


Product Description

Photo credits: www.aldcroft-photography.co.uk


This early 1970s Tourmaline mink car coat brings glamour to everyday winter wear. It features a ¾ length hemline and full length sleeves along with a scoop fur-backed portrait collar that can be worn standing on chilly evenings or flat, as shown in photos.  It also has two concealed satin-lined front pockets.

The coat was crafted by one of Buffalo, NY’s premier mid-century furriers using  extremely thick and  plush Tourmaline mink pelts that are skilfully sewn to disguise all pelt lines. The fur’s colouring is radiant yet neutral—best described a champagne hue with taupe highlights.  

It is lined in a cream silk-satin and closes with two concealed furrier hooks—one at the neckline and one at the waist. It also has a lovely interior detail of velvet ribbon near the hemline and like all fine furs of the period, it is monogrammed with the name ‘Marie Grace Ullingren.”. This can easily be removed if so desired or covered with an appliqué.

The style and colour of this coat make it incredibly versatile and capable of being worn as an everyday piece or as a outwear for a formal occasion.
