Finding Furs



Ivy King

Today while walking through collections, we spotted yet another two boxes of furs. A few months ago Amy went through and cataloged all of the furs in the collection, so it was surprising to find multiple furs. They were sitting on one of the bottom shelves and hidden away from view. 

Upon opening the box, we discovered two coats, two stoles, two hats, and a collar. The two stoles came from Joseph Bicha's local fur shop which was established in 1915. One of the coats came from Kreuzer Furs, which is a fur company that was in La Crosse from 1916 until 1975.  

We cataloged, photographed, and packed all of the furs, so hopefully that means we have actually cataloged all of the furs in our collection.
