This is a wonderful, old piece. It is a black cape from the Victorian Era. It is a child's size, making it perfect for a large doll.
It is black and is lined in a dark brown fabric, that has a sateen finish. All of the fabric is cotton. It is very early, so it isn't in perfect condition. It has a patch as well as several worn spots (I photographed each, so please look at photos closely). The fabric has faded some, so it has a brownish look, but not as much as some of the photos show. It looks most like the coloring in the 1st photo.
I have not tried to clean this in any way. It does have an "old" odor, but no smoke or pet odors.
The neck measures approximately 13 inches. It measures approximately 16.5 inches long at the back and 11 inches at the front.
Please contact me with any questions. Thanks for shopping, and have a wonderful day!
