Description
Cape - Lace + pearls - 19th century
Belgium

A beautiful 19th century cape!
Beautiful antique English Victorian mourning cape or pelerine made of fabric, finished and decorated with lace and black beads.

The whole consists of lace and thousands of pearls, made entirely by hand.

A ribbon around the waist gives more support.

The cape closes with hooks and eyes.

Also good for a theatre company.

The collar has a bit of wear and tear, but given the age it’s not so bad.

Pictures are part of the description.

Shipment by DHL.
