Bewitching late 1890s black silk Victorian mourning capelet crafted in the mantle style with a long front and short back, featuring pretty beaded trim and a high collar. Gorgeous whether worn over antique attire or more modern fare! Fully lined, hook & eye closure at throat.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →collar: 13 inches →shoulder to shoulder: 16 inches →bust: up to 36 inches →length at front: 32 inches →length at back: 16.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium
CONDITION: Good, as-is antique condition. The silk has some splits near the shoulders, as well as on the front tails. I added a hook & eye closure at the neck. Some of the beading is a little loose and the threading has faded. The lining is sturdy and in great condition, so I find this garment to be wearable with care, but also good for display. The silk is fragile near the shoulders, but not actively shattering to the touch. Great and affordable piece! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or content labels. Appears to be made of silk faille with cotton muslin lining and glass beads.
