Imagine your favorite 20" fashion lady in her boudoir, selecting her ensemble for the day... A trip to Minton's hat shop? A stroll to the park? A promenade down St. Germaine De Pres? What would she sport? A walking costume, yes... and what would she throw over that if the chill in the air was just beginning to creep into the air? A cape, just like this one. The most pristine example I have EVER seen out of wool and silk, this gorgeous find is just STUNNING. Not a single strand out of place, this piece is perfection, personified as far as Victorian textiles are concerned. Perfect for a fashion doll of 20-24" in height, this impecable cape will please the very hardest to satisfy lady in your collection! Costume pieces this precious never last long, so if you missed out on the last cape we listed that was only up for four hours before selling, SNAP this spectacular complimentary cape up!
*Yes, we are offering this lovely piece on layaway! Take up to three months to pay for it!*
Condition: Superb. I have never seen one this fine before! One minor bit of wear on one shoulder, but really, the silk is perfect, the wool is generally witout flaw and the cut is just out of a dream. We don't see them this nice every day, so swoop in and grab this fashion accessory before someone else does- it is priced to move too!

**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we know how important it is for them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!**
