This is a magnificent and rare black silk pelerine all hand-stitched and edged with beautiful piped petals. It is fully lined and has the name ‘H.N. Deal’ stamped three times near the neckline (presumably the maker). It is shaped to close at the front neckline, probably with a jet or vulcanite brooch. There are small areas of slight discoloration which may sponge out but overall a lovely piece which would add lustre to a modern or antique outfit. This is most likely from the Civil-War era when there were many black outfits worn in mourning. It would look lovely on the black silk Civil-War era gown that we currently have listed (see image). The jewellery in this image in not included. 14" deep. Please note that this lovely item has been in storage, so once shipped it may still retain a whiff of mothballs. This should settle with airing. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 77.
