Black A-Line Astrakhan Fur Jacket with Silver Mink Collar – Large, 1950s



Contrasts and textures abound in this striking vintage gem, whose rare larger size and modern cut lend life beyond its age. Still lustrous and supple, the astrakhan’s deep black poodle curls are the perfect foil for the oversized silver mink notch lapels, which form a rounded shawl collar at the rear. Flannel-lined side pockets provide warmth, but we’ll forgive you if you let the breeze in and wear it open: the peony-embroidered brocade lining is too good to hide! A-line jacket of genuine astrakhan fur; contrasting V neckline with notched lapels and cape collar of silver mink. Fur hook closures at sternum and waist; flannel-lined pockets both sides. Fully lined in heathered silver brocade embroidered with pink and blue peonies; gently elasticated at lining cuffs. material: Persian lamb fur, mink, silk satin brocade noteworthy: professionally fur clean only alterations: reattached loose fur loop at waist condition: very good with age-appropriate, extremely gentle coarseness to mink collar measurements: neckline: 7” across neckline opening, 5” plunge from shoulder collar: 5” at widest shoulders: 20” sleeve: 23” from shoulder, 16” from underarm sleeve circumference: 16” at upper arm and cuff, elastic cuffs stretch from 8” – 11” bust: 48” waist: 50” hips: free length: 27” from shoulder, 29” from rear neck, 18” from underarm sweep: 56” label: Furs by Switala (Buffalo, New York) size: no size tag present; comparable to modern size large Please note a portion of all proceeds from fur sales is donated to animal charities.
