Product Information

An elaborate mourning cape dating to the 1890s / early 1900s. Black silk, figured with an almost Art Nouveau stylised floral, with hook fastenings. The cape is tiered, with an overlayed shoulder piece made of silk, lace and black jet beads forming points at front, edged with a silk ruffle. The collar is formed with flounces of lace and silk, and around the hem is a deep flounce of floral lace and has hook and eye closure. Inside is cotton lined. The cape has 2 different types of lace, on the shoulders is a heavy, thick lace looking like crocheted and at the hem is a light floral lace. The jet black beads are different types as well, there are round ones and tear drop as well. The cape is in good antique condition, there are damages to it as it can be seen from the photos provided which make part of the description as well. The damages are : the lace seems a bit discoloured / faded in places and also some damages to it here and there, some of the beads are missing, one of the hooks is missing ( the closure ) and there are also hand stitches and in places can be seen this has been fixed as well. Overall this piece is a lovely piece to have and to wear.
Shoulder to shoulder : 45 cm / 17.7 inches
Length : 65 cm / 25.5 inches
Closure : hook and eye ( one missing )
Size : seems like a UK 12
