Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Bewitching little late 1800s Victorian Mourning capelet featuring a black lace stand-up collar and purple satin ribbon detail. Throw over your shoulders to complete a Victorian ensemble or add a little antique witchiness to everyday outfits. Fully lined, hook & eye closure at neck.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat) →shoulder to shoulder: 14-15 inches →bust: open →length: 20.5 inches →collar: 15 inches around
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium; the important measurements here are your shoulder and collar, as there's wiggle room on the rest of the garment.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition with some flaws to note. There are a number of moth holes on the outer shell, see photos. There's fraying to the end of the purple ribbon, which I believe was added more recently. The lining wasn't done correctly or was possibly altered, so on one side, it flips out and doesn't lie flat; could be fixed with creative pinning. Presents well, and I always like offering affordable Victorian mourning pieces when I can! 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 purple ribbon and black lace
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Likely homemade. Feels like faille with a cotton lining.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
