A beautiful antique Victorian era mourning cape.

This decadent and rich velvet cape would have been worn as part of the traditional mourning dress of the period.

It is fastened with loop and button fastening and 3 of the original buttons remain, the others have been replaced.

It is cut from a thick black velvet and is lined in silk.

There are some small nibbles to the silk inside (see photos) one hook fastener is missing and there is a parting of the fabric on the shoulder (see photos) all of which could easily be restored.

It is very old and will require very specialist cleaning, it has not been cleaned by us.

It has come from a prestigious family household and has been in that family until now.

A beautiful piece.

Approx 31" total length and 18" shoulder to shoulder.
