Vintage 1950's silver, platinum mink stole with stunning scalloped edge. Hollywood glam fur shrug, bridal accessory or wrap. Perfect for prom and formal evening accessories. The lining is a light gray with an inside pocket. Extra long mink shrug section for comfort and hands-free wear. Made in England by Wright & Sons. Perfect for the bride, and evening out or to dress up a pair of jeans with some fabulous jewelry. The fur runs all one way from one end to the other. Nice low pile as well for easy wear and maintenance. Bridal wear, fashionista or evening out, this is a stunning fur. The last photo is from How to Marry a Millionaire with Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable. It shows Marilyn with a silver fox shrug that suspiciously looks like this one!
This fur can be worn draped elegantly over the shoulder or across the arm. Perfect for cocktails, glamorous parties, wedding day for the bride or the fashionista to make a statement. Drape it over your coat for extra panache.
CONDITION: The fur is in excellent vintage condition. The lining may benefit from a cleaning depending on your taste, though I don't think I would bother myself.
SIZE: 78 inches long and 16 inches wide over the back. One size fits all.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
