Hoping the thread can give me an assist. Condition issues. What did I pay $250 for? There were some vintage Christian Dior New York hats that came out at the same time, looked very 60's, so guessing about that age.
Wait does that say hermes on the buttons????

Yeah, that's what I was asking - on the bay there's one persian lamb coat of a sort of similar style with Hermes buttons, but I don't like embroidered logo on the liner (on the ebay one) knowing how strict Hermes is about their logo, and the line above the E looking like it's straight across and not on the correct angle. So wondering if this is a vintage coat w/ vintage Hermes buttons, or a vintage Hermes fur coat. There are no other markings anywhere. I like that it has a Parisian store label inside, wish it was branded in something other than the buttons.

Yea all i can Find are a few auctions of similar Long coats by that store but no mention of hermes. That’s a tough one i wouldn’t even know where to start. Maybe an hermes collector or some sort of historian?

looking at the liner again i'm curious whether the quilting is original (on a lamb coat? hm.) are there any places to peek underneath ?

Lining is solid, only place I can peek in is where there is a missing loop for the front hooks, and it just shows the white puffy backer to the lining. I'll do a little research and see if anything turns up, but there being no real comps is not promising, I have another 5 days to return it.
