Coat with Belt


Maximillian Furs (, 1939 - 1987)

For decades, Maximilian Furs was renowned for creating the most luxurious and expensive fur garments for an elite clientele. Anna Maximilian Potok co-founded the company and served for decades as the principal designer. She is credited with making full-length fur coats popular for evening wear and with using mink with the hairs brushed upward so as to resemble sable (as seen in this coat).
