This is an eye-catching handmade matching full length black cape and cloche style hat for an antique doll approximately 21-23 inches tall. Since there is no fitting involved with the cape except the shoulder width, it can be used by a slightly shorter or taller doll. The cape is completely lined in a gold-colored silk and the hat has the same color silk band and cluster of bows with silk ribbon streamers. The black cotton velvet cape has a very unusual back design with an arch in the lower edge. There is a 2-3/4 in. yoke at the shoulders which has two old black hooks and eyes for closure. The hat is lined and even has a draw-string sizer as a part of the liner. This set is a part of a lot of antique doll clothing that I purchased years ago at a doll show. I know some Mother or Grandmother spent days and even weeks sewing clothes for a little girl's dolls. Every item is sewn with professionalism and using the best fabrics available.
Condition: Excellent overall. The silk ribbon on the hat is worn in spots but is still in very useful condition. I see no rips, tears or stains.
Measurements: Cape: Longest length (front) 16-1/2 in.; widest span across the yoke on the back (shoulder width) 8 in.; around neck opening (loose fit) 10 in.; Hat: circumference around the inside 12 in.
