1940s Black Karakul Lamb Stole

 

 

 

In the 1940s,  nothing spelled luxury, glamour and allure like the mystique of furs, and that included many furs that are pretty much obsolete as fashion wear today. This stole is styled in a black karakul lamb with a texture that is flatter and finer than your run-of- the mill persian lamb or karakul furs, because, how shall we put it? -  it came from an animal that was quite immature, as in fetal. The stole features a tuck or roll at the shoulder which gives the effect of a wrap over a wrap. Demi lune pockets at the bottom front and a frog closure in front.  It has a bronze satin lining (looks orange in our photos, which were lightened to show detail).  Carries a Joseph Noonan Furs label, and is in excellent condition. The approximate measurements are 15" in length down the center back, and about 20" long from shoulder to hem in front. And in case you're wondering, all the furs we offer have been professionally  cleaned and glazed by our fabulous furrier, Dee. $255
