This is a fabulous Victorian era cape or capelet fashioned of a cotton velvet a deep purple in coloring. It is trimmed with black jet trim. This piece is circular in design, so it will fit most sizes. The purple Velvet outer fabric is in very good condition. The collar and neckline areas do have damage and loss of pile and perhaps could be covered with more black jet trim to hide. Some of the jet trim does have some missing beading. The piece is lined for winter warmth with a layer of wool inside the lining. The lining is fashioned of black silk and is weak with tears... the cape does need to be relined. When it is relined and the neckline perhaps covered with jet, this could be a stunning and wearable piece.
