This breathtaking and unbelievable French gold lame & green silk-velvet cape will make any woman light up a room. The metallic shimmer adds a perfect amount of sparkle to this luxury treasure. I love the 3-dimensional colorful hand embroidered rose-garden scenic motif . To this embroidery, the designer adds gorgeous glass-beads and extravagant jewels. The garment closes with top hidden hooks and is fully-lined in softest silk-velvet. Extravagant garments from the 1920's are difficult to find, especially in unique colors! Evening capes from the flapper era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined such opulence with such youthful flair. The free-size silhouette with tiered sides embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude while the luxurious fabrics whisper "wealth and status." The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless 90 years later, as does this sumptuous couture piece. The pictures say it all.

This vintage French cape is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The inside is immaculate and hand-finished. Only sign of age is some minor splitting to the lame which is fully backed by the velvet. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous French designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from this era. An investment piece that will increase in value.
