Gorey Wear: Auction Features the Fur Coats of Edward Gorey December 4, 2010 – Tags: Edward Gorey, Fashion
Among the sixty lots up for auction this week in the Edward Gorey sale at Bloomsbury is what appears to be a full run of the fur coats owned and worn by Gorey. A whopping 14 coats are up for auction including one designed by Gorey for Ben Kahn Furs.
Gorey didn’t just stick to one animal. There’s the Sheared Beaver Stroller coat, one made from Lynx, one Racoon, a bunch of Otters and a couple of Coyotes.
Also on the block is some of Gorey’s jewelry and of course there are also books.
