Notes

Uncommon trade catalogue for fashion fur - coats, capes, scarves, hats, and muffs for the Jazz Age. The types of fur include chinchilla, ermine, monkey, mink, fur seal, leopard, white fox, beaver, marmot, civet and caracul. Annis Fur Post was founded in 1887 by Isaac Newton Annis (1858-1939), who had started collecting furs around his home in southern Michigan as a young man. In 1880 he was employed by Frederick Buhl and Company, a Detroit fur pioneer, in the manufacturing department, and remarkably by August 1887, on a capital of less than 1000, Annis started in business for himself with four employees. By the 1920s he had over 120 employees and was a major supplier to the American fashion trade. The business continued successfully until the 1980s when changing tastes forced scaling back, and eventual closure. This beautifully produced catalogue is highly evocative the oh-so, luxurious and stylish 20s.
