Exquisite late 1860's Civil War era, early 1870's Victorian camel colored silk fringed dress cape. In near pristine condition. This early textile is exceptionally strong and very sturdy...can definitely be worn without a single need for restoration or cleaning. In the photos you will see a few spots from my steam ironer...they have sinced driedwith absolutely no ill effects.There are absolutely no stains. Early hook and eye closure up the front. Fully lined in polished cotton which helped to keep the fine patterned fabric in excellent codntion. Upon close inspection, you will find 3 very tiny holes....lower left side and two along back hemline....see very magnified photo below. Gorgeous matching color, triple layer of silk fringe....no loss! This exquisite mantle cape is entirely hand stitched with piped hand tucks inside. This is beautifully made...a very hard to find color which will go with many plaids and prints of this era. Measures 11 inches across the back shoulders and is 21 inches mid back to fringe end. For very serious antique clothing collectors...this is a must see, very wearable piece of fashion history.
