Welcome to the Fab Gabs 50% off Blowout Sale! In four years on Etsy, we've never had an event like this, but our shop has outgrown our space - we want to downsize to the comfortable 250 item size shop we used to be. So, this very special sale runs now through 11:59pm on August 2nd. Don't miss out - there's no Reserves and no Layaways, so get your favorite pieces while we run this special one-time-only sale. Now this is a set made for a Hollywood Starlet! A rare 1930s ostrich capelet with matching muff. This capelet is unusual and an especially rare find, because most capes from the era had only horizontal rows of ostrich sewn to cloth, and then lined. This jet black capelet is constructed entirely of ostrich sewn to itself and resultingly has an open, unique "fringed" look that cannot be matched! More photos are happily provided upon request.

The matching muff is beautifully made - padded for support and warmth, and lined in heavy silk charmeuse. Only the top half of the piece is open for one's hands - the rest is stuffed for fullness, necessary due to the large size of the muff. There is a handloop hidden inside.

✂-----Measurements

Capelet measures 32" wide across the top, 18" long at the center back, and has two 15" ties.

Muff measures 16" wide, 12" high and 3" deep


Condition: Very Good
There is some minor shedding, as is normal with feathers of this age. It is not significant, unless one were to be rough with it. I find no other issues to note. A rare, stunning and entirely wearable set.
