1860s Victorian Civil War Ladies Silk Mantelet SALE Originally 75 NOW 40

Authentic, circa 1860s, Civil War Era ladies silk Mantelet. The "Mantelet" was a shorter version of a early Victorian ladies "Mantle" and generally had two longer pointed lengths in the front, such as this one. Lots of detailed hand work on the scalloped lace for anyone to admire!

This is made of a fine black silk and is quilted inside (see) photo. It has a smaller collar at the top with hand knotted fringe and a longer hand knotted fringe around the bottom. There was a delicate floral embroidery, which is still seen on the back but the threads are gone in some areas with only the pattern visible on the sides. Bit of light wear at some inner edges. A nice addition to a vintage collection, this garment has held up well for being over 140 years old. It could also be used to make a pattern.

Buyer pays for $7.00 priority shipping (based on item's weight and bulk), with insurance and tracking included! All sales are final. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have prior to purchase, and can send more photos upon request. Note: My international shipping rates are very reasonable, with no handling charges but buyers should contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase. Direct paypal or credit cards through paypal are my preferred method of payment. Paypal only for outside US.


A short note on condition... The fringe is in excellent shape for a garment this old, and the lining is still intact with the exception of it pulling away around the neckline and showing signs of wear in the same place.

SALE PRICE, Originally $150, now $105, (A $45.00 Savings Discount.)

Victorian Outfit underneath is not included for sale in this listing.
