c. 1880's/1890's Bottle Green Silk Velvet Beaded Capelet with Black Lace

Quote:
Guaranteed a true and old WORTH piece. The older Worth pieces command the highest prices. Case in point, the Worth trained Court Reception Gown which recently sold for $90,000 at auction. The label matches the label information listed in the reference book on the subject of Worth, "Opulent Era: Fashions of Worth, Doucet and Pingat" book by Elizabeth Ann Coleman. Similar in design to a drawing of an 1884 Worth Caped Bodice, but this one is even more spectacular with the amazing long looped jet black beading. The delicate black chantilly lace at the sides, actually hidden under the beading, is of exquisite design. Condition is Excellent for age with minor velvet indentations from beads in storage and slight fade of center back.
