    I have just cleaned out a drawer and found my Mother's old mink collar ... probably from a coat. I suppose it could be rabbit. Will have to check that out. It is in very good shape. It's about 4" wide and 30" long. It's curved somewhat to fit around the collar of a coat, I presume. It also has two "hooks" on one short end and two loops on the other so it appears that that is how it would be fastened around the neck. The question is what the heck to do with it? I would never wear it. Perhaps use it on an animal themed quilt? Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks.

    My cats have loved playing with mine, and yes it was mink.
    A detatchable collar from a red coat I got about 50 years ago.

    I just bought a rabbit coat on ebay inorder to get the fur. I put a fur collar on a knit shrug that my 8 yr old GD had. It had come with a fake fur collar that was ruined by washing. The new collar looks really great and she loves it. It only took part of one sleeve. I think I may make her a vest from the coat also.

    You might trim a hat and gloves to match with your collar.

    I have my mother's fox fur collar and am thinking of donating it to the local museum.

    I would give it a pair of goggly eyes and name it "Hubert".

    Okay, well I didn't say it was a good suggestion! (see the chocolate thread - I am under the influence of chocolate!)
