Steele Brothers fur coat

This vintage coat was made in the early part of the century by Steele Brothers of Gloversville, New York. Made from black fur which I have been told is Buffalo hide, it is double breasted, with a toggle front, shawl collar and handwarmer pockets.  It has a quilted lining, ticking sleeves and storm cuffs.

Pit to pit: 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 51″
