At the same antique store that I found the late Victorian bodice, I also found this beaver muff when I was only on the lookout for animal fur collars! Though it’s hard to tell in these photos, it’s about the size of my cat.
I have no idea how to even date an item like this. I don’t particularly care what era it’s from, I love it.
And for size reference next to the cat…
(She says there is something funny about this “animal”)
