I have a 110 year old fur muff brought to the USA from Ireland. How do care for it?


Usually furs are placed in storage during the spring and summer months. The Fur Storage Companies/Furriers, will usually do the repairs, clean and store the fur, and in this case, the Fur Muff. It is important because the heat and humidity can take its toll on a fur pelt. This will give you an examole of one fur storage company and what they charge:

Most nother states have several fur storage and repair companies.

As far as value, it would depend on the type of pelts the muff is made from, age and condition. If youp contact a furrier, they can give you more information on the muff. When I was young, I used to go with my mother to the Furrier every spring so she coould have her mink stole cleaned, glazed and put in storage until late fall and early winter. Please let me know if you have further questions. If you supply a State, I can try and locate a Furrier for you. Joan
