Whether a mink, sable, chinchilla, fox, or designer fur, our experts value your fur based upon historic auction results, construction, age, style trends, wear and design. Today, women are passed on furs from their glamorous grandmothers or come across them in Goodwill shops – but how does one know what fur is worth? Even more pressing – is how can you tell whether a fur is faux or the real deal? Our vintage fur experts examine the history of the fashion of fur and will always provide a fair market value for your fur appraisal.
It is undeniable that furs are back in fashion. An extravagant material, fur tends to be associated with high fashion and has been used on coats, jackets, mittens, skirts and blouses alike. Vintage furs have been popular for fashion icons for decades – you only have to picture Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, and Elizabeth Taylor to think of luxurious furs on beautiful women. Fur is a favorite among top designers like Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, and Christian Dior to name a few. Contemporary furs, although newly constructed and less worn, tend to be worth less than vintage furs or heirloom furs. Pre-owned furs continue to sell well on the market.
If you are worried that collecting fur is unethical, experts have said that collecting vintage fashion is greener than purchasing a contemporary fur or a new chinchilla coat. Our experts will also make you aware of the legalities of buying and selling fur. For instance the he Endangered Species Act of 1973, bans anyone who wishes to sell leopard, tiger, cheetah or bear.
