"Lamé Soutache & Beadwork" Vintage 1930's Crepe Silk Beaded Cape


This divine 1930's bitter chocolate coloured crepe silk cape, embellished with rows of scalloped glass beadwork and swirling silk and gold lamé soutache embroidery, is a rare piece to behold. 

The rounded neckline of the cape is accented by a central hook and eye fastening, concealed by a decorative brown crepe silk longline bow. The elegant cut of the cape drapes across the shoulder line and bust, and is edged with a scalloped hemline, emulating the undulating embellished details. This wonderful cape showcases the craftsmanship and embellishment design of the era.
