Stunning Victorian Hand Beaded Capelet or Bib Necklace

A absolute beautiful early textile that is in excellent condition. This is a darling little beaded capelet with a pretty fringe bead detail at the neck. It has a simple hook closure allowing you to style it front or back and wear it sitting on the shoulders or down the front as a full bib necklace, breastplate. The pattern is stunningly beautiful - glossy black beads are hand sewn in a net design so it falls and drapes or expands quite wide. The edges are fringed. It is utterly beautiful and all original! Excellent condition

The shorter inset piece is 4.5" from neck to beads, the full front length is 16.5" from neck to bottom
