1920s Rare Ermine Flapper Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A truly magnificent coat made up of shiny, subtle skins, hand sewn together into diagonal designs with a wide band of fur wrapped around then hemline. It is so typically 1920s in styling with a huge shawl collar and wrap style body. It closes either with the collar looped up to keep you warm or with the collar laid out like a shawl and fastening with a large button and loop below the hipline. It is fully lined, has the original silk underarm shields and the fur is like new with no dryness, wear or bald spots. You usually see ermine furs in white so to find one in this gorgeous shade of reddish brown is extremely rare, and to find one in pristine condition and with such beautiful styling is nearly impossible.

You usually see ermine fur coats and jackets in white, this is during the winter months when the animal is trying to blend in with the cold snowy areas from where they come. Then when the summer comes along they change colour again to blend in with their environment. During summer months they turn this absolutely gorgeous shade of reddish brown, but only for a few short months, making the making coats in this distinctive colour extremely rare, much rarer than their white counterparts.
