Description

A super, rare antique wedding cape dating to the late 1800s, early 1900s. This piece isn’t without issues. There is a spattering of small holes , nothing of a great scale, but certainly to be noted. Also pale blue blemishes can be seen in some areas. I suspect this has been stored badly & there has been colour bleed from another garment. The fringing is tangled & in need of time & patience to rectify this. Despite these flaws, as can be seen from the photographs, it is a beautiful item & a decorative display piece. A great souvenir of antique canton embroidery. From the nape to the very edge of the hem at the back, it measures 86cm. From the nape to the lowest point at the front, it measures 128cm. Both measurements include the fringing. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require further information or pictures.
