1920's Sapphire-Blue Metallic Embroidered Velvet Flapper Cape


Breathtaking 1920's French metallic-gold threaded sapphire-blue velvet 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 embroidery and over-sized gold tassel all whisper "wealth and status." It closes with a hidden hook and the cut will adapt to pretty much any frame. An extremely rare and hard-to-find garment! Measurements Bust:Free Size Total Length:48 inches This antique cape is in excellent wearable condition with no visible rips,stains or holes. The cape is lined with beautiful gold silk. This garment is over 90 years old and is truly spectacular.
