1920/1930’s Silk Cape
Oh my wow!!!
Original condition 1920/1930’s cape
Aubergine silk or satin with plush velvet collar and tie
I’ve never seen beadwork like it. Highly embellished on the shoulders and four scalloped panels. Every glass bead and crystal hand sewn. Extremely weighty.
Very little in the way of loss, if any. A few small areas of home restoration required (see last pic). No damage as in holes or tears.
Truly magnificent museum quality
And yet so wearable
