About two years ago I purchased this vintage coat at a local antiques auction. It is lustrous curly black Persian lamb, a luxury garment made by furriers Lyford-Woodward of Bangor and Bar Harbor, Maine. I believe it is from the 60s or 70s. The condition of the piece is impressive, it appears barely worn.
I paid all of $15 or less for this beauty. The coat is heavy and very warm and I thought to wear it to dress-up occasions in winter. Well, it’s hung in my closet since I bought it. I finally gave in and decided to sell it. It sold in about two weeks on eBay for $180. Pretty good return.
