Antique 1880s black fine light weight wool cape or capelette with black silk ribbon neck trim and fastening.
A shorter length cape that is simple in design with real silk ruffled band trim and wide silk ribbon bows at the neck.
The lining a back silk deco look design.
The neck is very small at 14".
It is 17" long.
The cape appears to have been hand made in the era.
Overall the cape is in very good condition structurally. The neck ruffle has deteriorated, but it is only hand stitched on so it can be removed without trouble.
The other ribbon is fine.
I see no evidence of an any hook and eye fasteners though.
The lining has one small hole and some abrasions.
It is still wearable with care or a lovely display piece.
Note the As Is aspect.
