1940s Russian Squirrel Jacket

 

 

 

 

A shorter version of the russian squirrel coat we show elsewhere on this page, this beautiful coco brown dyed Russian squirrel coat is also from the late 1940's to very early 1950's.  Auburn hued fur is unbelievably soft and supple, while the cropped length makes it as wearable over jeans and a cashmere sweater as it is over a 1940's evening beaded evening gown. Straight, boxy cut with a shawl collar, a fur clip closure at the front, and the full sleeves are finished with a deep cuff. Bust/hip to 42", shoulder 15", sleeve 21", length 24". Best on a modern 6-8. Fully lined in brown satin, it carries a Ted Weiss French Furriers label, and is in excellent condition. $365
