"La Parisienne" Vintage 1920's Silk Velvet & Ostrich Feather Cape


This rare and opulent 1920's lilac pink silk velvet cape, edged with lilac toned ostrich feathers, is a rare piece to behold and never again find. 

The rounded neckline of the cape, fastens along the front with a matching silk velvet tie edged with ostrich feather trim. The simple shoulder line of the cape sets off the wonderful ruched gathers of the silk velvet, drawn together in running stitches, contrasting the softness of the ostrich feathers. The tiered ostrich feather hemline, is constructed on three silk bases, creating a tiered design. Fully lined in the softest of lilac silks, this original 1920's cape showcases the opulence of the 1920's.
