Gorey Wear: Auction Features the Fur Coats of Edward Gorey December 4, 2010 – Tags: ,


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.

Fisher Stroller coat designed by Gorey with blue plaid lining, knee length, long hair, dark brown and black. With  hand-sewn label “Edward Gorey for Ben Kahn Furs.” Label sewn in celebrating the 2010 Annual Goreyfest and Gala

 Also on the block is some of Gorey’s jewelry and of course there are also books.
