1870s to 1880s Antique Victorian Wool Paisley Cape SZ S/M

There was quite a fashion for converting the huge paisley shawls of the mid and late 1800s to more fitted outer garments in the 1880s - 1900s. Sometimes dolmans, sometimes coats, and more often, capes such as this one. With the pleated neckline, but narrow shoulders and cut, I am thinking this dates form either the early 1880s (sans bustle) or later, ca.1900 after the leg o’ mutton sleeve had passed. The colors are rich. The borders of the shawl were placed at the center fronts and hem for a very neat finish. The color includes the black central portion of the original shawl. The front closes with cords over buttons in black. There is no lining.

Label: None

Size: Shoulders: Approx. 16”, Center Back Neck to Hem: 51”, Hem Sweep: 60”

Condition: Colors are strong, no spots or stains. There are three mends as shown, 2 are on the front edge, on is back with chiffon. There are small thin spots in the fabric, but these are of a small size that doesn’t warrant backing.

1920s Vintage Black Velvet & Moiré Evening Dress Coat SZ S

This lovely evening dress coat is lightweight in black velvet with a silk lining. The front panels, neck ties, cuffs and circular flounce are all in a rayon moiré. The sleeves are quite long with the added ribbon cuff, but wasn’t meant to be turned back as it is not lined and the seam would show. There are the typical 1920s back neck darts as shown. The construction on this is good, but most likely home or dressmaker made. 

Label: none
