Absolutely gorgeous mink cape. Don't miss the fabulous detail of the scalloped edge along the bottom - the lighter and darker shades of the fur are actually used in a way to accentuate the scalloping and follow the curves - AMAZING! Also - look at the way the slits are overlapped in the front so that when your hands are inside, the colors of the fur STILL follow the curve of the scalloped edge and camouflage the opening - Truly outstanding craftsmanship.

Elongated, overlapping slit openings at front to put your arms through, or keep them inside if want to stay cozy. Either way, this piece looks elegant and beautiful. Striking 1940's-esque shoulder pads add to the glamour. It has one hook and eye closure at the neck. And if you happen to have the initial 'G' - all the better - because it has one monogrammed in the lining :-)

Lining has beautiful black passementerie embroidery inside the front openings (see photo) so that even when it is worn open it looks eyecatching and unique.

This cape is in EXCELLENT condition - the lining is VERY slightly faded, but other than that I couldn't find any issues.

Tag reads: 'Folk's' since 1868

Measurements are a little difficult to take on a garment of this type. I would consider it a small to medium. To help give you an indication of the size, I laid it flat and measured straight across the front from side to side at approximately where the bust would be - and got 26" (which would suggest that measuring it all the way around would be APPROXIMATELY 52"). It is approximately 16" across from shoulder to shoulder with the shoulder pads. It is 26" long measured from the base of the collar to the hem in back. For reference, My mannequin measures 35" at the bust.
