Elaborate old doll/baby cape

Just wow. Bright red cotton cape with elaborate silk thread embroidery. Please note this is a very old cape so there are many pin holes, moth holes, emboridery loss, and places where the trim has come undone. Examine the pictures carefully.. not a pristine item by any means but still absolutely stunning for an early doll. With the old hook and eye clasp closed its about 6 inches shoulder to shoulder. It is 17 inches long. Is it a coronation cape?? Maybe for a bigger french fashion wants to play queen? OR do you have a big wax baby who was born a princess?? Ive had this item for years waiting for the right doll. I LOVE red. Have I mentioned this once or twice in other listings? I think dolls look fabulous in red. And this is a real deal early item. So Ive hung on and hung on and now... well Im cleaning out and its time to admit that this item is doing no one any good sitting in a box in storage. Yes it worn but yes its absolutely original. Passes the Dotty Pig cool-ness test with an A++!
