This is a stunning Witte of London fitted black Russian broadtail coat with a mink fur hem, circa 1970s. Russian broadtail is the finest there is. It has a fabulous moiré pattern.
There is a full double lining. The first lining is dark brown and is a backing to the fur. The second lining is a muted green colour and patterned. 'Witte of London' and the initials PB are embroidered on to the lining. The lining is perfect, though there are a few marks of wear.
The buttons are not the originals, but have been replaced with older black glass faceted buttons with gold or silver trim. There are four gold and two silver buttons. These add more luxuriousness! There is also a hook fastening under the collar and two front pockets.
There are a very few signs of wear to the Russian broadtail fur, and a very few small repairs. The mink fur hem is perfect. This is a luxurious fine quality vintage coat.
