Vintage 1960s Pastel/ Demi-Buff Mink Fur Waist-Length Cape

£238.00

Product Description

A luxurious and extremely versatile vintage mink cape that is perfect for the autumn and winter season. This exquisite, pastel/ demi-buff mink cape features a 10cm fur-backed scoop collar that can be worn down or standing, and two satin-lined concealed front pockets. Its oversized rear sweep with a broad horizontal hem and side arm slits make the cape sit like a jacket when worn.  Purchased in1972 from Charles Anger & Son of Indianapolis, the cape is crafted of wide, superbly plush and thick pastel mink pelts that are artfully sewn so that the pelts lines are invisible. The hemline of the cape is elegantly detailed with a horizontal banding of pelts.

The cape is lined in a taupe floral brocade satin and can be worn open or closed with a vintage brooch. There is a small monogram reading “Ruth V. Shilkett” finely embroidered in dark brown thread.

The elegant simplicity of this cape and stunning but neutral colour of the fur make it an extremely versatile addition to any wardrobe.  Wear it as an everyday piece over jumpers, to a holiday party over a cocktail dress, or to an autumn wedding.
