Vintage Large Circular Colobus Monkey Fur Floor Rug, circa 1969, Fully Lined

About

This is a cities legal item. This rug represents the next to the largest size these rugs were made in Africa pre 1974. In 1974 Cites forbade the import of the Colobus Monkey as they were considered NT, near threatened to VU, vulnerable. Had they had not forbidden import, the species would very probably have become EN endangered. They were used massively by European and American designers for high fashion women's clothing and outerwear, hats & capes from the early 1920s to the 1970s. The USA and the remainder of the western nations stopped their import in 1974 and the species is no longer at risk. This rug was purchased by my dad in Kenya, where he travelled for work in 1969, before the law was created. Since then the 3 he purchased were, for my lifetime kept in climate controlled storage with my mom’s furs, as she wore fur in earlier times. The fur is long and full and lustrous, The black and white fur is strikingly beautiful, and in very good condition, as the rug was lined , and put in a non-traffic area before being put in storage in the mid-1980s, it is in good condition . Please note that image 13 shows 3 rugs, the smallest of which is now sold. They go well with contemporary, Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency especially, and some antique styles, especially Colonial styles. We cannot ship these outside of the USA.
