Wonderful 1970s Grey Full Length Wool Cape w Elaborate Braided Edge Detail

The 1970s saw the height of the cape's popularity and they were a tremendously easy way to add a ton of drama to any outfit from jeans to evening wear.  This one is made from a heavy grey wool and is cut to be full length and with tremendous volume through the cut. The lines are easy and the weight of the wool allows it to fall from the shoulders in a swoop of fabric that falls to the floor. It is constructed from a steel grey wool that is warm and has a decent weight to it, but is not so heavy as to be cumbersome when on. It hooks at the neck with a large hook & eye and is open below that to allow for the maximum movement.  The detailing on it is incredible. It has a hand set braided cord in two shades of grey that is done in an intricate pattern to  follows the collar and then runs down both sides of the front. Two large medallions of cording are also set under each point of the collar. Excellent condition with a note below

Unlined with ribbon finished interior seams and closes with a hook & eye at the neck. I see a couple of pinhole repairs that are seen from the back only
