“Grizzly” Fur Blouse of Electrified Lamb

 

“Grizzly” Fur Blouse of Electrified Lamb

£1,500.00

Jackets with fur known as “Grizzly [bear] jackets” among collectors were the ultimate leather jacket to own between the 1930s and 40s. Their real designation however was Fur Blouses and they were offered by many outerwear companies for wearers who wanted fine styling and rich appearance plus extra warmth and long wear. They were also known as Laskin Lamb* jackets. The most notable makers were Top Notch by Ralphs-Pugh Co. Inc., King-o FUR, Wind Ward, Albert Richard, Laskinlamb (who was a major producer of the fur used by almost everybody), and of course Block-Bilt of California who was the maker of the jacket we reproduced.

**  Τhe garments constructed of pelts from young sheep, were called “electrified lamb skin”. The pelts’ smooth, fur-like appearance was achieved by submerging the curly wool in acid, oiling it, and then alternately combing and ironing the wool fiber until it had been straightened.
