1880-1890 Victorian Second Year Mourning Black Velvet French Jet Beaded Cape For Sale

  1880-1890 Victorian Second Year Mourning Black Velvet French Jet Beaded Cape

Be swept back in time! From my traveling museum collection, which began at age 15, I offer for your consideration:
An authentic Victorian second year mourning cape, circa 1880-1890, embellished with French Jet beading. The beaded design is lovely and covers the entire cape in a Paisley style pattern. The collar also has some fine Jet beading on it.For first year mourning, widows were only allowed to wear a black unadorned crape material. (A crimped silk fabric.) The second year she could wear other fabrics in black, adorned with Jet beading, a favorite of Queen Victoria's.
This beautiful piece of history belonged to a wealthy woman who could afford such luxury. Often these are found made of fur outside, but this is 100% cotton velvet. The lining is a silk blend fabric. Except for one tiny white spot inside, the lining is in wonderful condition, with no rips or tears. Throughout the cape in various places there are Jet beads that are missing, and some of the velvet is worn at the collar, edges, and on the shoulder areas, not uncommon in a garment over 100 years old.
Even so, it's a stunning piece, I have worn it on occasion in my re-enacting, receiving many compliments. The front fastens with 4 large hooks and eyes. It also has a black velvet ribbon at the neck, and there's a cute little pocket inside the lining. Be sure to view all 12 photos for details.
