MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →collar: 14 inches →shoulder to shoulder: up to 18 inches →length: 23 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: One size fits most; just watch collar and shoulder measurements!
CONDITION: Good antique condition. This cape is clean, sturdy and ready to wear, but does have some cosmetic flaws. The fur trim on the front hem and collar is dry and has a number of areas where it's fallen away. It's noticeable when worn but not horrible. There's some light fuzzing to the soutache and mild seating to the velvet nap. The velvet overall is no longer deep black, but a more faded black with some brown hues. Presents nicely! 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.
COLOR: Black with brown fur trim and hand-painted lining.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of velvet, fur, glass beading and wool soutache.
