Please scroll down to see The Mildred Mink Cape modeled and in greater detail.

Inspired byMildred Pierce (1945).

Circa: 1950s.

Materials: Raccoon and rayon.

Color: Dark brown.

Closures: Three thread covered metal hook-and-eye closures up the front of the cap.

Label: Benioff's of Allentown - Reading.

Measurements:

  • Shoulders: 18"

Condition: Excellent.

Of Note

  • The arm slits measure 14" on each side of the cape.
  • There is a very minor 1/4" mark (it looks like pen perhaps) on the inside lining, right panel. This, of course, is not visible when the cape is worn.
  • The hem near the collar is somewhat looser than the rest of the hem. This could be easily fixed if you'd like to sew into the base of the fur and can be seen in one of the images below.
  • She's in lovely shape!

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears. 

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your next new-favorite vintage item. 

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.). 

We are always available to our clients for questions and encourage you to contact us. We'll do our best to respond to your email within 24 hours.
