Rare vintage fur jacket in pearl white with front zipper. This mink coat comes from the lovely daughter of the famous actor Reginald Denny - it was purchased it in the late 1960's or early 1970's at Wachtenheim Furs in Los Angeles. Wachtenheim Furs is a unique fur business that doesn't advertise and operates entirely on word of mouth. The company started in 1947 and they not only have new coats, but they will clean, dye, and/or re-style old fur coats, which I especially like in terms of sustainability. They have pelts from which designers can choose to create original pieces and they sell a large percentage of their furs to the entertainment industry so costume designers are well aware of the company! The company is still run by the son of the original owner too!
This coat is in pristine condition - a female mink that is incredibly luxurious with Debbie's name embroidered in the beautiful satin lining. The cuffs are gathered and there are side slit pockets - great contemporary style that can be worn today and fit into a modern wardrobe effortlessly! If you are thinking about buying a mink coat, it is important to know who made it to assure authenticity - this company name adds huge value to the piece and would be a wise investment piece.
