This is a black Victorian mantle / short shoulder capelet. This antique Victorian mourning black mantle capelet features silk chenille tassels and beading.

The antique black capelet is constructed of delicate silk ribbons on the interior which is woven into a lattice pattern along with soft chenille ribbons. The antique black capelet is embellished with shiny glass beads that are arranged in a scalloped pattern. High neck line. The collar is chenille and the fringe at the front opening & bottom edge are also strands of chenille.

There is a hook and eye closure at the top of the neck. The neck measurement of the antique Victorian mourning caplet is 14". At the shoulders it is 16" approximate from 1 side to the other.

The antique Victorian mourning capelet is 13" deep and is 44" from side to side at the bottom edge. There is no sizing tag but I would say that it is would best suit a small build.

Age: Late Victorian era, circa 1880 - 1900

Antique Victorian mourning Black Capelet Condition: The antique Victorian black capelet is in fair to good wearable condition. There is some small tangling of the silk chinelle fringe ribbons as well as stray threads. There are some missing silk chinelle ribbons to the front and back lower fringe.

There is a slight age storage scent and I will leave the cleaning for the buyer to complete.
