I'll throw my bfa and art history minor in the ring.

I wouldn't call that cubism. If it's acrylic paint, that wasn't invented until 1934 and didn't become used much until the 50s.

Kind of looks unfinished to me. Does it say 67 on the stretcher bar? Might be a more accurate date if it's acrylic.

Does have some age and nice qualities. I would say it's done by a good painter but not a great one. Although that doesn't mean the artist isn't famous and you might get more clues on technique seeing it in person.

While not exactly schooled on cubism, I fondly remember my Qbert-ism days.

Oktoberfest is over...

I lean towards outdoorsy pursuits. My favorite fall places would be Yosemite, Banff, Rocky Mountain National Park, Black Hills of South Dakota.

i don't think it's a short i as in EYE. 

 

i've always assumed more like "ICK" 

 

so i've been saying vick-OON-ya

 

to my ear VAI-COON-YA sounds gringo, like saying EYE-talian.

Pretty positive that the clip I posted earlier, homie has it dead to rights, on the dot. Fairly sure this is a truly logical conclusion also, because in the 50s, It was simply viewed as more rare, and demand was a result of this as well as a more exclusive nature to it (due entirely to economics of the industry, nothing else). No protection or regulation, consistently stock in the cooler months, of 100% fabric content coats. Business logistics regarding costs, sourcing, milling, etc...  was the reason behind the cost. The animal and its by-products were thoroughly discussed consistently and daily by nearly all working in retail, in no way viewed as some mythical type creature, highly documented and detailed breed, basic knowledge of anyone working with it, and certainly without question, known across the board, how to pronounce the animals name 100% correctly and done so by everyone who ever needed to say the word professionally and/or socially....I mean more or less on par with someone who simply does not know the correct way to pronounce Cashmere today, it simply doesn't exist because it can't.

I have this same model. I believe it was an option that Nordstrom put together many years ago. It did not have a name but is sometimes referred to as the old Clifford.
