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 beyond measure late 1930s / early 1940s black silk velvet opera cloak featuring an evil queen-esque ruffled collar, pointy puffed shoulders and a luxurious amount of drape. Photos just don't do the sumptuous black velvet justice -- the details really pop in person, include the puff shoulders, as it's just too large for my dressform. Don this coat over your most delicious gown and take back the castle. Fully lined, button closure at neck with interior tie at waist. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for more information.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with some light wear to the lining, a few spots where the velvet pile is a bit rubbed and two moth nibbles on the sleeve I've closed up that aren't particularly noticeable. Overall 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.

MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels, but professionally made and done so very well. Appears to be made of silk velvet with a rayon lining.
