Sapphire Blue Minks by KonekoKaburagi Sapphire Blue Minks by KonekoKaburagi
Sapphire Blue treated with brightener. These were pelts brought by my grandfather at auction in NYC back in the 70's.
Ranch raised in Canada.

Nice pelts. Are they ranch raised on a fur farm in Quebec?

I think some of them were. My grandfather usually brought minks from ranches either very north US or Canada.

Oh okay. Thank you! Because I know the biggest mink breeder here in QC, and these reminded me of the last Sapphire mink pelts he showed me!

That's so awesome :D
They are just soooo pretty! I will have to do some more research because they could be :) Was he in business in the mid-late 1970's?

I always wanted to get into mink farming :)

His name is Peter, he has been in business for only 20 years or so. He's in his thirties. Before him, his father ran the farm. So in the 1970's, his father was the one operating the business :)
