Our local furrier let us know that this stole is wild mink and is 70 - 80 years old. Wild minks are smaller than ranch minks so the individual pelts are more narrow.  These dark brown pelts are perfectly matched dark brown pelts creating slightly darker striping. 

In the middle of the back of the stole is a surprise, the head with glass eyes. Bakelite chain runs across the front and hooks into a loop on the other side. Brown silk crepe lining with small inside pocket. Please read condition report.

    Mark/Label: Miss Frederics of John Frederics

    This label was a partnership of John Pico Harberger (a/k/a "John Pico John" or "Mr. John") and Frederic Hirst. The Coty awards gave John-Frederics a special award for millinery in 1943. When Mr. John and Frederic Hirst dissolved their partnership in 1948, Mr. John formed the Mr. John label. Frederic Hirst kept the John-Frederics label and also designed hats as "Mr. Fred." After the split Mr. Fred did not fare as well as Mr. John. John-Frederics was mentioned and/or advertised in fashion magazines in the 1920s through the 1950s. John Frederics Charmer hats were advertised in 1950s magazines, after Mr. John left the label. The Philadelphia Museum of Art has 20 hats in its on-line collection, including examples before and after the partnership split. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has 44 hats, including this innovative turban made of wool yarn and beads circa 1937-41, a turban made of twisted straw braid and silk circa 1940 (and a variation in different colors), an amazing medieval inspired toque with donut shapes dripping with fringe circa 1941, and a spangled snood circa 1942. Labels: John Frederics Made to Order, John Frederics, John Frederics Charmer (less expensive line), "Sweet Young Things" "Miss Frederics."

        About Mr. John:
        John Pico John (Mr. John), (1906-1993), born John Pico Harberger, Munich. Before forming the Mr. John label, he was a partner with Frederic Hirst in John-Frederics (1927 to 1948), and during that period designed the hats for Gone With The Wind. Mr. John's designs were popular in the 1940s through the 1970s. Clients included stars of film, stage, opera and high society -- Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Swanson, Gloria Vanderbilt, Mary Pickford, Lauren Bacall, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell. He and Cecil Beaton designed the hats for My Fair Lady. His hats were worn by Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express, by Greta Garbo in The Painted Veil and by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. At its peak his business employed 150 and brought in over $7 million a year. Mr. John was one of New York's great entertainers, known for his outrageous behavior. When he launched a new collection he publicized it in Mr. John's Fashion News, using celebrities as models. He retired in the 1970s, complaining that women's fashion was dead, and that women had "'sold-out'" to "hairdressers who make orthopedic hairdos and french-fried curls." McDowell, p. 159-160. By then he was the world's richest milliner. He died at age 91. (New York Times Obituary dated June 29, 1993). Several examples of Mr. John's hats are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Labels include Mr. John Boutique, Mr. John Classic (1960s), Mr. John Caprice (1960s label for whimsies), Mr. John Moderne, Mr. John Signature Series, Mr. John Empress, Mr. John Sophisticate, Mr. John Debutante, Mr. John Sportif, Mr. John Young Elegants.

        Frederick & Nelson was a department store chain in the northwestern United States, based in Seattle, Washington.

Its former Seattle building is now occupied by the flagship Nordstrom store.

         

        HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE:

        1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear.  You are measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.
        2. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly and check the number. 
        3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
