CIRCA 1880-1900, LUMINOUS SILK DAMASK CAPE W/ L.P.HOLLANDER &CO. LABEL


CIRCA 1880-1900,LUMINOUS SILK DAMASK CAPE W/L.P.HOLLANDER &CO.LABEL. A stunning period cape made with large silk Damask Brocade and  fine feather edging on neckline,open area for arms and edging.There are  heavily encrusted rhinestone filigree buttons at the neckline.This item seems as if it was never worn but unfortunately there are some splits in the fabric ,probably from  storage. It look wonderful displayed and because it is also lined in cream silk and has a nice weight, it displays beautifully.If a person wanted to wear this, they could,but gentle wear is what I would advise. The Silk Damask has large scale roses and is really quite stunning. Perhaps a good restorer could work on this and then use for display.(Item #AL62)
