I'm not an expert on fur - although I am sometimes so fortunate as to be permitted to groom Princess Mimi herself - and, to be honest, it's a bit of an elephant in the room around here. Of course HRH - or any of us - could never support the killing of animals for their pelts, but any fur that comes our way is so old that the originals grand-children have died of old age decades ago...all of which is by way of apology for not being able to be more informative about the composition of this little number!
I'm pretty certain at least that it isn't leopard fur, even though it does have a definite leopard-style darker spot on the sandy brown colour. It is extremely soft, with a short staple (about three-quarters of an inch at most) and it shows no signs of moulting.
It's lined, but has no labels. Both inside and out it is in very good, clean vintage condition, with plenty of wear in it. Fitting to the top of the head, approximate measurements are: height of crown,4 inches (10 cms); diameter, 21 ½ inches (54.5 cms).
Princess Mimi believes that you can only feel confident
about buying lovely things on the internet if you can have a really good look at them. Here
are all the pictures she has of this item - as usual, clicking on any picture will produce a large
version of the picture - some of the files can be quite large....
