This charming cape probably dates from the late 1800s to possibly the early 1900s. This wonderful old red fabric with the tiny dots of black and the gathered hood is dolly perfect! The doll modeling this piece is 23 inches tall. The cape measures14 1/2 inches long and this does not include the hood. The hood measures almost 4 1/2 inches from top to bottom. The distance around the front of the face is about 10 inches. Lying flat the inside of the neck measures 6 1/2 inches. It appears to have original ties. It is treadle sewn and along the bottom near the front on both sides fabric was added in order to create the right size and appearance for this old cape. I find no holes or tears in this piece. This cape will definitely enhance your doll's cuteness number. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a peek at my other early items and thank you for the look.
