Today, we're highlighting three indulgent accessories crafted from natural fur. For many of us, fur is the type of luxury that stays in the "maybe someday" column while we use our budgets on things that are definitely needed today. However, who's to say that today isn't "someday"? There's only one way to find out: Put in your bid on one of these gorgeous pieces of warm, wearable art and spoil yourself today (for once)!
Black Cross Mink Cape
This cape is nothing short of breathtaking, with its pieced natural mink forming the elegantly unmistakable symbol of Christianity in subtle rows. The mink is contrasted with natural silver fox trim and toggle, for a contrast that's both rewarding and subtle. This timeless, classic piece will begin bidding at $1,500 ... which is $2,000 below the retail price of $3,500. With many thanks to our anonymous donor, the Black Cross Mink Cape might be your chance to own this heirloom-quality fur cape.
Natural Raccoon Vest by Paparazzi Fur
The latest in accessories is vests, and you'll see them everywhere: embroidered on linen for summer, leather for fall ... and why not fur for winter? This natural raccoon vest, sourced from Finland, showcases a stunning chevron pattern formed by the fur piecing. Sure to electrify any outfit and make you the envy of the room, this piece also could very well serve as the world's most stylish concealed-carry cover garment. Generously donated by Paparazzi Fur, this vest will begin bidding at $1,000 ... nearly $1,500 below its normal retail price.
Camo Fur Neck Warmer
One oft-overlooked aspect of fur is that it is, automatically, camouflage somewhere. This Rex Rabbit Cowl Neck by David Green & Sons is camouflage everywhere except for the club or coffee shop, where it'll definitely make you stand out. This butter-soft cowlneck is simple, yet luxurious, with a natural pattern of pieced furs that looks quite a lot like waterfowling camouflage patterns! You can wear it as a scarf around the neck, or pull it down over the shoulder for a shrug look. Generously donated by David Green & Sons, this camo fur neck warmer is among the auction's best steals, with a starting bid of $125.
