Amazing Victorian black and dark blue velvet winter cape with a dark blue velvet shawl, 1890s
Amazing black and dark blue velvet Victorian winter cape! This also comes with the matching dark blue velvet and lace trimming shawl. This such a thick and heavy cape it would keep you nice and toasty warm in the winter, with the shawl that you could either put over your shoulders or over your head. Found in a little vintage fair in France!
The condition of this cape is very good considering its age, the velvet is still a lovely rich colour, the cape is made out of a tick and heavy gabardine material however it does have a few holes that aren't noticeable when worn. Lastly, the shawl and its lace trimming are in perfect condition.
In the case of very old garments, I don't wash or dry clean them as I am afraid I might damage them.
This cape is one size fits all. It fastens at the neck with multiple hook and eyes.
