Vintage 1930s Art Deco Cut Velvet Devore Cape or Capelet Ladies One Size
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely art deco era capelet that is made of “cut”, “burnout” or “devoré” velvet. The velvet is arranged in “swagged” rows. The velvet is in a deep cherry or pinkish red colour on a violet purple chiffon base fabric. The cape closes with a pair of ties at the neckline. It is scalloped along its bottom edge. This capelet probably originally had a matching dress or was meant to be paired with an appropriate dress.
Sizing: This cape should fit a variety of sizes. It measures 21” along the top edge, exclusive of its ties. Each tie measures 12” in length, so the entire length along the top would be 45”. It measures approximately 63” along the bottom edge. It has a height of 10 1/2” at the center back of the cape.
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining.
This is a wonderful art deco capelet - perfect to accessorize / dress up an evening gown....
