Elegant Black Fringe and Bead Trimmed Button Front Mantle circa Late 1800s
Victorian era black cotton button front mantle with soutache trim, beading and fringe. Fringe is partly missing (halved, sort of) on right side front, some soutache needs reattached, missing ribbon bow that was at neck. Buttons inside placket intact. Overall light fade and wear. Sold as is. I think maybe a person could cut the fringe to match on front and reattach the soutache and it would be pretty wearable!
15" shoulders, 27" long in front, 22" long in back
