Mahogany Brown Dark Ranch Mink Coat Real Fur, slightly below knee length, with NO Monogram and beautiful interior lining. This coat has the same horizontal pelts, front pockets, and glove sleeve length as fashion icon Jackie O is wearing in the pictured press photograph. (This coat was NOT hers) Please view all photographs carefully, they are considered part of the description, many have notations. The coat smelled of perfume when I bought it, so I had it professionally cleaned and conditioned by a furrier. I still detect the faintest remnant of perfume.
I do have a sensitive nose and the newer, sweeter, and generally cloying perfumes popular today give me an instant headache. I would describe the initial scent, PRIOR to cleaning, as more of an quality vintage oriental, along the lines of Shalimar, Mitsouko, Opium, etc.Now that it's been cleaned, I would be hard-pressed to make such an identification. Again scent is VERY faint, most won't even notice, even nose to coat. Shedding is minimal to non-existent. I would say no more than any other fur coat (even a new one), which leaves a couple of hairs on your dress, easily brushed off. Nothing you would need a lint roller for.
The fur is soft, coat supple, pelts in average vintage condition, only slightly yellowed, which is unavoidable after 40-50 years. All in all, I would say this coat was well cared for. My furrier said it looked good considering it's age.The item "Mahogany Dark Brown Ranch Real Mink not sable fox Fur Coat VTG Jackie O 1960s" is in sale since Thursday, February 21, 2019.
