Condition

This one really is in beautiful condition. It has no major faults or significant signs of wear, On very close inspection I've found a tiny area on the right side which has thinned though it's no bigger than a five pence piece (if that) and is completely covered by the surrounding fur. There is truly nothing that you can see when worn, the fur is lush and thick, the pelts are soft and supple and the lining is clean and fresh, it's ready to wear on arrival.

Colour

Dark mahogany brown

Maker / Brand

Label illegible (see picture) though obviously a bespoke piece
