Adorable dark brown faux seal plush capelet circa 1890s.
The silk "seal plush" is made to look like seal fur. Capelet is lined with a lovely purple quilted silk satin and has a small in the lining.
Toggle closure at the collar and pocket trim appear to be real fur.
Found an extra fur toggle in the pocket, but I am not certain where it belongs. Will include!
Collar can be worn standing up or folded down.
+++ Measurements +++
15" collar circumference
+++ Condition +++
Fair to good condition with some flaws to note:
- Quite dusty from storage
- Missing some of the hook/eye closures
- Wear and tear to the silk lining
- Seam separations between lining and outer capelet
Wearable with extra care but likely best for study, display, or pattern-making.
