This is a unique and totally original Edwardian era Opera Cape.The main body is devore velvet, the cut out pattern having a silvery, sparkly effect which depicts exotic Eastern classical patterns of peacock feathers and boteh of varying sizes. The devore square measures 38" x 30" deep, the full square with silk velvet edging measures 50" x 36" deep. The bias cut "hem" is 17" deep. The inside is lined with silky black velvet with a 2 1/4" insert on three sides of gold lame. Self covered buttons fit into velvet loops to form the "sleeves" to the cape. From each arm hangs a heavy gold tassel each measuring 13" in total length. This is the most simplistic of designs but makes up into such an exquisitely elegant item of vintage clothing. The condition is extremely good, no signs of wear at the collar or edges. The cape is of French origin.
