Mink Coat. Sold.

Remodelled in the 60’s this genuine mink was made by Williams of Kew “Furs of Distinction” possibly in the 50’s.

At the time this cosy garment probably cost as much as the deposit on a modest house in that suburb.  The ravages of depreciation have left the house unaffected, however the coat is now a mere $195. Actual colour is darker.Image
