1940s Arnold Liebes Feathered Mink Cape w/ Bakelite Details & Silk Lining

Arnold Liebes



Wonderful deep chocolate brown feathered Mink cape by Arnold Liebes. The cape is hip length, with a straight collar, and fastens at the neck with a grosgrain rope with AMAZING swirling polished bakelite acorn - like aglets. The cape is lined in black silk with a subtle floral pattern. Perfection.
