    Condition
    Fabulous antique condition... Robust and incredibly wearable.. The velvet outer is excellent and has remained a rich dark noir.. There is some minor tarnishing to the silver embellishment and light scratching to the front clasp.. The lining is intact and generally good but does  have mottled age related discolouration throughout with a few minor holes.. All fairly minor and corresponding to age, nothing to distract from the overall beauty of this cloak, which just oozes vintage charm
