Amazing antique Victorian tulle lace applique capelet shoulder cape 1890s

This week I am listing more beautiful Victorian & Edwardian linen and lace, costume and accessories from a country house estate in SW Scotland, and some of the unusual items I acquired at the auctions I attended across the UK recently.  I managed to buy 5 really beautiful antique Durham quilts last week – from a large house in County Durham – all listed this week.  I have also been laundering and sorting out the remaining boxes of textiles and treasures from my autumn trip to France, and am trying to clear space in my studio, as my first buying spree this Spring is now organized for the beginning of April. Can’t wait!

Beautiful original Victorian capelet or shoulder cape - very Gothic! It is beautifully made, with fine wool cut work appliques laid over black tulle, and finished with black silk ribbon. It closes at the neck with a heavy duty hook and bar. There are a few breaks in the tulle that require a stitch (second last image), but otherwise it is in excellent condition. The tall stand up collar is stiffened, and is 11cm high with scalloped edges. The capelet will fit many sizes - shoulders from 36cm - 40cm, and the length is approximately 40cm. You could certainly make an entrance wearing this!

PLEASE READ

I sell antique and vintage textiles and ephemera - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their charm. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Please think carefully about bidding if you are looking for a pristine item that is as new. My passion is for beautiful antique textiles and quirky vintage items with a gently faded grandeur, so do consider this before deciding to bid.

PAYMENT

Payment to be made within 3 DAYS of auction end please. My items always end on a Sunday evening, so payment must be received by the following Wednesday evening.

Paypal ONLY for international buyers - no bank transfers.

For UK buyers I accept Paypal (preferred), personal cheques drawn on a UK bank account and uncrossed postal orders. When paying by UK cheque, please note that your item(s) cannot be sent until your cheque has cleared.

All buyers who fail to pay within my 3 day deadline, or who do not contact me to arrange for delayed payment, are automatically added to my blocked buyers list, and will not be able to buy from me again. I also automatically open an unpaid item case against non-paying buyers on the 4th day after auction end.


SHIPPING

I am happy to ship worldwide, and always combine shipping costs on items that end on the same day. I do NOT hold over payment of items from one week to the next - all items must be paid for within 3 days of auction end.

From 1/1/2014, all parcels will be sent by tracked shipping ONLY. Parcels to UK will be sent by Special Next day Delivery, or ParcelForce 48 for heavier items.  For international destinations, parcels weighing under 2kg will be sent by Airsure or International Signed For, and those that weigh over 2kg. will be sent by Global Priority. Apologies for the higher costs, but eBay policy has changed, and I can only send by tracked shipping now.

My items are carefully packed so they reach you safely, and I charge a small fee for packaging materials – this is included in the shipping cost.

I aim to dispatch parcels to my customers within 48 hours of receiving payment.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!



RETURNS POLICY

Returns are accepted within 14 days, but ONLY if the item has been seriously mis-described, which I try very hard not to do! BUYER pays for return TRACKED shipping. Please note that as I sell unique, antique textiles and ephemera, any item you return MUST be well packed and received in exactly the same condition as sent. Any UK customs duty that I incur in order to retrieve a returned international parcel will be deducted from the refund amount.

If a returned item is found to have been worn, laundered, repaired or damaged in any way, thereby compromising its value, I will only make a partial refund according to the condition. Once I have received the item in return, and have verified its condition, I will refund your original payment and original shipping costs within 3 working days. 

SERVICE

I always try to offer my customers excellent service, and will continue to do so. As I am a one-woman business, and am often away seeking out interesting items to offer you, I am unable to offer a seamless “Amazon-like” service, with dispatch of parcels within 24 hours, and free domestic shipping. I will nevertheless continue to offer the same professional service as before despite the recent changes in eBay policy.

Please do contact me if you have any questions - I am always happy to help.
