1920s fur coat adverts, which make me a bit uncomfortable!

1920s fur coats

I’m sure you all know by now that I’m very anti-real-fur, so I constantly find it strange to see vintage adverts for fur when it was seen as something desirable and, well, socially acceptable! These adverts for furs are both from the 1920s. I just don’t think you’d get adverts for fur coats any more which stated:

They are made on the premises under thoroughly hygienic conditions by our own highly skilled furriers, from skins that we can recommend with the utmost confidence.

Yuk! But then again, I can’t say I’ve seen an advert for real fur in a magazine since the 80s. Perhaps I just don’t move in those kind of circles. What do you think?
