I consider this possibly one of the most exquisite, truly beautiful Victorian walking capes I have ever seen. Dating to circa 1860's, the cape is made from cream wool, which was possibly originally a pale blue colour, and is now sunlight faded. The cape is profusely decorated with gold embroidery and is finished with gold metallic soutache trim. You will see that the cape is neatly lined with cream silk fabric, and that there is a lace collar stitched to the top of the silk collar. The cape has a button fastening at the neck with a tiny red bead detail.
Length: 19 1/2 approx and c. The cape drapes beautifully and will flatter any shape/size, from a small to medium adult woman, or a younger child. Please take time to view all of the images as these will be the most helpful part of the item description, but do please read the written condition report too.
