T99-1.jpgSAGA MINK LADIES SHORT COAT, SCANDINAVIAN MINK:  Size is MEDIUM, B. Forman Co. of Rochester, NY was retailer.  While I am quite aware that fur is not an ethically correct item to sell and BEFORE you go all Rambo on me for selling this....I am a vegetarian, and that's because I REALLY LOVE ANIMALS. I do not eat them. Second-hand furs sold at auction are not sold from a store that needs to replenish its racks by killing more animals. These animals have been gone a long time. You are not hurting this animal or more animals by wearing this or any other second-hand fur coat or other product. It will keep you very warm. If anyone asks, I suppose you could say "it's a fake and isn't it a good one?" For fashionistas who love both animals and wearing fur, going vintage seems like a simple solution. Old furs don’t directly contribute to the profits of modern fur farms, and they’re less toxic to the environment than faux furs (shown by Anna Sui and Christian Siriano on the runway), which are made from petroleum. Fur coats and stoles from the ’50s and ’60s evoke the lux, decadent glamour of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, but vintage furs go for a fraction of the cost of their contemporary counterparts.  B. Forman Co. was a retail store in Rochester, New York specializing primarily in high-end women's clothing. Once the largest store of its kind between New York and Chicago, the company, founded by Benjamin Forman in the first decade of the twentieth century (now closed), B. Forman Co., along with McCurdy & Co., created Rochester's Midtown Plaza, one of the first enclosed Downtown malls in the United States.  (Cuprammonium rayon is a rayon fiber made from cellulose dissolved in cuprammonium solution. It is produced by making cellulose a soluble compound by combining it with copper and ammonia.)

T100-1.jpgFUR STOLE, UNKNOWN ORIGIN: This fur stole has no markings on it as to manufacturer, it covers your shoulders and a bit down your arms.
