A stunning and elegant ladies vintage cloud silver, platinum mink full length coat. It has distinct platinum / silver and grey accents throughout with what I think is called princess cuffs and nice pull up collar that has a snap right under it and acts as a neck warmer when done up. Nice gentle swing, with two side pockets and one discrete inner one as well with lovely platinum satin lining The coat hangs really nicely but sadly the photos really don't show that as the bust I used it too small and doesn't fill it out well enough. Shipped boxed, fully insured with tracking and signature requirement by courier.
CONDITION: As will all vintage clothing there will be signs of having been worn, which is part of its authenticity. This coat is in excellent condition with supple fur and no damage or odor. The lining has a few issues at the underarms; The right side has been mended but the left side has a few stress tears that need stitching (see last photos) with arrows clearly point to issue. The other thing is that the hem needs a few stitches to close it up (I don't sew and don't want to mess it up potentially). There is another next to the name.

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.
