#3182 - c. 1900 Heavy Tan Wool Walking Cape with Fabulous High Collar! It's cold outside. It's 1900. You've given your man-servant the day off, so you've decided to walk down the street to the millinery shop yourself to pick up your newest hat imported from Paris. What to wear to keep warm? Call the upstairs maid to fetch your "everyday tan wool walking cape" decorated with golden satin ribbon and same tan wool appliques. Abalone carved buttons. Wonderfully stitched tall high collar to keep you toasty warm! Lined in a tan cotton with slit pockets on each side. Gotta look great just in case you run into that snobby neighbor of yours! Excellent condition.
