I purchased this vintage raccoon shawl fur collar from a vintage store in Tucson, Arizona a couple of decades ago. I am not a fur expert and do not know what fur it but fortunately the vintage store had already labeled the fur collar. The tag from the vintage shop is still on the fur and they said it was a Raccoon shawl collar probably from a coat from the looks of the style.
The fur is fairly longl and soft. It needs to be shaken to get the fur fluffed up but it would look good on a coat or sweater by just adding a couple of buttons or long running stitches.
The lining is a rust taffeta which is in good condition but needs some stitches in place to reattach it in some places. The former owner just did it with running stitches which would be easy since no one is going to look at the underside of the collar once it is on a coat or sweater.
Measured on the outer edge, it is 30" long & 5-6" at the widest point across.
There are some stains on the inside of the lining. Also, the entire top area of the lining closest to the neckline needs to be tacked down again as it has come undone. The fur has matted around the area inside that area where the stitching has come undone but it is not visible from the top. Easy to stitch the lining at the neck area or have the cleaners do it. You could actually attach it to your sweater or coat without doing it as no one is ever going to lift up your collar to examine it.
Ready to attach to a coat, dress or sweater. Very pretty!
Take a look at my other fur collars which I am putting on my site today.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
