In the same home since the 1960's (it was my Mother's). From an always pet-free and smoke-free home and in dry storage for decades. The outside is in perfect condition but the lining has some damage due to its age. It is unlabeled but I would guess it is a medium size. Precise measurements are as follows: 20" across shoulders; 14.5" sleeves (measured from underarm seam); 27 long length measured from mid-collar backside; 2 pockets; 2 types of faux fur; with buttons closed across chest, it is 22.5" from underarm seam (measured flat); it flares to 24" on bottom half (measured flat); the lining is a beautiful golden satin but has some damage (see photos). Lining can be removed or fixed. The only tag on it reads 'Fur Method' (for dry cleaners, obviously). Do not Brush, Press or Steam. It was most likely made by Sportowne. In the same home since then. A beautiful brown color of shiny 'karakul-like' curly and shiny fur from those sheep (but faux).
With the lining intact, it would be priced at several hundred dollars. I ship. The outside looks as good as those many decades ago.
It has two different faux furs on it. The fancy plastic buttons have twinkling shiny green stones in them. Only two are missing (from the middle button).
