Gorgeous Antique Victorian/Edwardian Aubergine Silk Velvet Cape/Shawl/Wrap. Burlesque

Circa 1900's or earlier

This is such a beautiful, elegant and understated cape.  Hand-made from luxurious silk velvet, in a sumptuous aubergine deep purple colour.  It has a silk satin lining, in a lovely contrasting beige skin colour.  The cape has been hand sewn.  There is no fastening, but you can use a brooch to close it.  The brooches in the photographs are not included, but the silver Iona brooch is for sale in my shop.

The cape has unfortunately suffered some moth damage over the years ~ the most notable is at the back of the cape, where there is a small slit measuring 0.5cm (this is visible in the 5th photo).  I think it would be quite easy to repair this, but I will leave it to the buyer to do as they wish.  There are a couple of other small marks, where those pesky moths have been, but thankfully this has not gone through the fabric.  There are quite a few small holes in the lining, and a stain just in the lining, but these do not show when being worn (please see photographs).

Even with these things considered, the cape is still in Good Condition for its age... and very wearable!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  Please take a look at my shop.  I will always combine postage to save you money ~ so if anything takes your fancy, just add it to your basket and request the total from me at the end.  From a smoke and mothball free home.
