A notable cape from my personal collection, this is ready for the costume trousseau of a savvy, fashion forward collector who knows that nothing beguiles a little lady more than a new accessory! A rare piece in very good condition for its age, I love the quality and delicate details of the cap... From the rare mother of pearl strap button closures to the extraordinarily luxurious hood with ALL of that crimson silk lining (that must have taken hours to stitch, this cape has it all.
Measurements: 12" top to bottom 7" shoulder to shoulder (but it could be worn looser or tighter) Our lovely model measures 25" tall.
Condition: Excellent overall condition, with only minor mothing and some minor damage to the silk of the hood, but really, I haven't come across many Victorian wools in such fab condition before! We won't have another like this for years, if EVER, I imagine, so if you have been waiting to bring a little fairytale magic to the , trousseau of a large Barrois or Huret, or even Bru fashion lady, this is your chance!
