1920's Opulent Metallic Gold-Lame & Sage-Green Velvet Cape-Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking 1920's French metallic gold-lame & sage-green evening cape-coat. Evening capes from the art-deco era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined such opulence with youthful sass. The casual, free-size cut of the cape embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude. The sensual silk-velvet, sparkling metallic gold-lame and over-sized luxe ruched-collar all whisper "wealth and status." I adore the front silk-tassels and genuine fur detailing. It closes with a front-button and the cut will adapt to pretty much any frame. An extremely rare and hard-to-find garment in this kind of color combination and workmanship.
