Black velvet evening cape with floral motif beaded embroideries - late 19th century Elizabethan revival fashion - French 1890s vintage

c. 1861[-66] [evening] dress, French. Silk. The Met, 1990.198a–d. [Note that 19th-century velvet could be made of either silk or wool. Additionally, 19th c. silk velvet is virtually indistinguishable from modern good-quality cotton velvet. Modern "silk" velvet feels totally different and will not accurately reproduce a 19th c. garment.]
