Exquisite Multicolored Blue Silk Fringe Trimmed Mantle circa Late 1800s
Absolutely the best Victorian mantle I've ever handled. If I didn't know it was over 100 years old I'd think it was made yesterday, the condition is so incredible.
Deep blue multicolored silk twill "striped" mantle with blue silk and wool fringe. Fully lined in scarlet red silk twill, has silk ribbon that attached at waist inside back, wraps to front of waist to tie. By M. Howard of Rochester of NY. 3 hooks in front to secure. Completely flawless, rarely worn if ever.
14" shoulders, 50" around hem, 28" long in front, 17" long in back
