MINK FLEA-FURS

A neckpiece of rare fur from a small animal was a popular fashion statement during the 15th and 16th Centuries. The head and feet was decorated with gold filigree and set with jewels. The most popular jewels were diamonds, pearls, rubies and emeralds. Often the head and feet were competely removed and replaced with gold ones embellished with jewels. A length of gold chain secured the fur piece to the girdle or bodice. This fur collar was called a "flea-fur" because it was believed to attract those noxious insects and contain them in one spot instead of having them roam about a person's body!

Because each one of these animals are unique in size and color, please contact us for a list of available flea-furs before ordering. We rescue and restore these minks from old mink stoles, giving them a new purpose. If you have any available, we would be interested in purchasing them.

POMANDERS

In the Middle Ages, people loved strong scents, believing them to be wholesome and a protection against infectious diseases; the stronger the odor the greater the virtue attributed to it. The pomander is just one of the ways perfumes could be carried on the body. Men and women alike carried them around their necks or suspended from their girdles. They could be as simple as cloves in an orange to works of art made of gold and decorated with jewels.
