A rare to find garment; an original Victorian lady's luxurious jacket / cape / mantle; it is the perfect covering for a beautiful gown during the evening or for the woman of more than just considerable means, it may have been worn for an afternoon visit. Ivory floral print on ivory silk brocade fabric.It seems to be meant to be worn during spring, autumn and possibly light winters as the inside lining is completely quilted with padded batting silk satin fabric with very deep and wide pockets. The 5 wide matching ivory fringe is created in two different patterns; it is just delightful. Everything about this jacket is in. In collecting over 40 yrs I have only had a very few of such lovely capes, thus I find this one to be quite rare especially being in excellent very sound condition. It is being modeled on a size small mannequin and there is still some room; the dress that was used to photographed is not appropriate.
This delightful original Victorian jacket cape will be a fabulous addition to any serious collection. Our storage and office areas are smoke and pet free environments.
