This is a great antique ensemble for your fashion doll, whether French or German! I believe it could also work for a bebe doll as there is not a waistline to consider.
A matching set which includes the lined cape, lined muff and gorgeous hat! It is made of curly wool type fabric and while it looks black, it also includes dark green. The doll I have this modeled on is approx. 23" tall, but would work for other dolls that are close in size. Just depends on how long you want the cape to be on the doll. That hat opening is approx. 2 1/2" across, but it can also just sit on the head succesfully.
The cape measures approx. 7 1/2" long from neckline to bottom. It has a ruffled black silk collar and one black tie ~ it is missing the tie on the other side. It is lined with a gray/blue silk lining.
The muff measures approx. 3" long. It is lined with the same gray/blue silk lining.
That wonderful hat is very fancy! It measures approx. 6 1/2" across the top from edge to edge. As stated above, inner opening is approx. 2 1/2" across. Same wool fabric on the outside rim as the cape and muff. It has wonderful pink silk shirring around the brim. One section has small area missing, but rest is pretty stable except along the wired edge where there is wear. Please see inside picture of hat to see this. The inside rim of the hat is decorated with spray of multiple think black velvet ribbons. It also includes a small pink silk fabric flower and a tiny black velvet bow with silver accents. The outside of the hat has a center of black velvet. The outside has two black feathers, one is broke at approx. the halfway point. It also has a wonderful pink fabric flower.
Condition: Outside of cape is in excellent condition. It is missing one tie. Inside silk lining does have some holes around the edges.
Muff is in excellent condition.
Hat is good aside from some inside rim pink shirred fabric wear, again see picture.
Great ensemble for your special doll!
