Tan leather jacket with a hand signed Signature inside. The front has feathers and foreign coins attached. The sleeves and edges look hand cut. Slightly worn leather, and missing one coin. The buttons/clasps are very unique beads and rope loop closures. The photos look blurry on my side - please let me know if they are for the appraiser, too. I will send others if these are indeed blurred.
Personal item in Colorado.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful vintage Burray Olsen jacket. Such vintage designer items are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
It is a lovely jacket in a great design showing off the fashion of the mid-1970s. Jackets and clothing by Burray Olsen were particular popular amongst musicians in the 1970s. Your jacket shows some signs of wear and use as well as the missing button. It is important when pricing unique objects like this that they are in a nearly new/mint condition. However that is rarely seen as the items usually have been worn when they were first bought.
There are some collectors to this particular type of vintage clothing and I am quite sure that your jacket with its many surprising add ons like the feathers, coins and button-beads will attract potential buyers.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online vintage designer clothing auction, where I believe the jacket has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Burray Olson jacket. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
