MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →collar: 14 inches around →shoulder to shoulder: 19 inches →length: 21 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small - Large; good versatility size-wise here, but do keep in mind the collar measurement and the shoulder width.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. It appears there is some light, even fading throughout, turning the velvet from black to brown. There is a chance it was originally made this way as a more affordable alternative to the popular seal fur, which was a similar sable hue, but it's impossible to tell. There's some additional spots of fade at the collar, including to the trim, and some wear there as well. Some light seating throughout to the velvet nap, but presents beautifully! 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: Deep, dark brown with black trim
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of velvet, cotton and horsehair. Dry clean only.
