Delightful little lace capelet to wear over bare shoulders on a dressy evening.
Antique cotton lace capelet is pale ecru/beige. Panels of two different laces are interspersed and then trimmed all round with matching lace edging. The neck binding is silk chiffon. Closes at the neck with a hook and eye. It probably once had a matching dress. Custom made. 1800s-1920s.
Shoulders 33 cm (13") - mannequin has 38 cm (15") shoulders
Length 38 cm (15")
Fair. Wearable with care. There is a large darn in one side of the front and a faint mark. Small holes in the netting throughout. The silk neck binding is disintegrating.
