Vintage 1960s Palomino Mink Fur Large Sweep Tiered Wrap

Out of Stock

£239.00

Product Description

Central Park Vintage is delighted to offer this luxurious and one-of-a-kind vintage mink cape that is perfect for weddings or winter evening glamorous events. This exquisite Palomino Mink cape was styled by a premier NYC furrier in the mid-1960s and features a quadruple tiered design, with the width of the cape narrowing as it sweeps around your shoulders to terminate at an elegant fur "loop". 

The cape is beautifully crafted of wide, superbly plush and thick Palomino Mink pelts that are supple and have a fabulous sheen. The fur's colour is outstanding: best described as a butter-cream or golden ivory. It is incredibly rare to find mink in this colour and of such a uniform hue, having  no variations in the guard hairs or under fur. The colour of the fur truly glows and anyone that wears it will feel like a superstar! 

It is lined in a cream satin and has a detachable pleated interior collar (We are not sure the purpose of this; however, it is detachable with poppers, so we have left it in). It also features two velvet arm loops, to ensure it stays put throughout the evening's dancing! It closes at the front with two furrier hooks concealed below the vertical fur loops at the front and like all fine furs of the era, have the previous owner's monogram beautifully embroidered in the lining in a matching thread. 

This cape is pure elegance in both style and colour and is a definite show-stopper. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful pieces we have had to offer in a long time, and we have never come across a mink of this style.  Wear it to a holiday party over a cocktail dress or to a winter wonderland wedding! 

An almost identical wrap was featured in a 1950’s couture fashion show—have a look at our ‘About Vintage Fur’ page and watch the video to see the wrap.
