Please scroll down for images of The Ava Bernhard Altmann Cashmere and Mink Cardi modeled and in greater detail.

Inspired by: Ava Gardner.

Circa: 1950s.

Material: Cashmere, mink, rayon, and lace.

Colors: Black.

Closure: The sweater closes with a single pankou-style knot, although the mink collar is completely detachable thanks to a series of metal clasps (please see picture below for more detail). There is also a single metal hook-and-eye closure at the base of the collar to draw the cardigan together.

Label: Bernhard Altmann.

Measurements:

  • Shoulders: 15"
  • Bust: 34" - 36"
  • Length: 19"

Condition: Mint.

Of Note

  • Please note, the lining does not extend into the arms, so if you have wool issues, plan accordingly!
  • As you'll see from the pictures below, the tag is under a layer of rayon and lace, making it somewhat tricky to make out via photo, but it's certainly a Bernhard Altmann!
  • While I would never trade the lives of these minks for this (albeit, lovely) cardigan, I believe that if one wants fur - the warmest winter outerwear by far - buying vintage is unquestionably the best way to go.

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 item(s). 

  • 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.).
