Pre-1920's

Just gorgeous.........that's how to describe this Victorian era 1880's caplet/mantle. This is the kind of piece you can just sit and stare at for hours. Black silk grosgrain fabric, dark green weaved stripes and covered with large and small black jet beads that create an amazing pattern. The open cape sleeves and back hem is dripping with long jet black bead fringe. Back has slight bustle with large fringed jet bead medallions.
Lined with black silk with silk waist strap.

Condition: Excellent.........there is wear to the interior silk lining and a few missing beads, but overall this is truly a beauty.
Measures: shoulder to front panel: 32" shoulder to back hem: 22"

price: $195.00
shipping and handling: $7.00
