Bewitching early 1900s Victorian mourning cape made from a fine black silk and featuring beaded lace trim along the collar and hem, plus extra decorative details at the back, including a fringe tassel. Just stunning and a wonderful look at turn-of-the-century mourning as Edwardian sensibilities began to creep in. Unlined, button closure at front + hook & eye at neck.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: up to 18 inches →bust: up to 34 inches →waist: up to 36 inches →length at front: 34 inches →length at back: 28 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium
CONDITION: Good, as-is antique condition. This garment is lightly wearable but does have some issues. There's weakness and shattering to the silk on both shoulders; it's been patched by a previous owner and though the patch isn't great work, it's sturdy and effectively stopped the shattering. The silk lining was removed, leaving some uneven fabric to the interior. The buttonholes are not functional due to the lining removal, so this piece should either be re-lined or worn open. Additionally, there's some light runs to the silk and fading to the threading in the beading, as well as wear to the back tassel. Overall, this is a great piece, best for light wear, a bit of TLC or display! 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 contents labels. Appears to be made of silk with glass beading.
