    Condition 

    This very rare and collectable Art Deco Cape is in excellent condition for its age. For a piece in circulation for nearly 100 years, I think it is in remarkable shape actually. The only issues I found is that there is some colour variation in the material, the collar is slightly faded  and there is a little crushing of the velvet in a couple of minor places. Other than that, and a couple of hanging threads, this cape is absolutely wonderful and in such a rare colour. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this item.

    This item is within our selling stock. In the unlikely event that two buyers purchase this item concurrently, payment will be immediately refunded to the latter purchaser. We apologise in advance if this rare circumstance arises.

    Comment

    Incredible 1920s cape/jacket with the most exquisite beadwork. It is in fantastic condition for its age with only some very minor missing beadwork in a few places and a small hole to the exterior at the hem edge in the centre of a floral decoration. There are also a few tiny holes and separations to the interior lining. These issues are relatively minor when one considers the age and rarity of the piece.

    This vintage coat has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age with no major flaws, perhaps some very minor crushing to velvet but hardly noticeable. Dress clip added for demonstration purposes only.

    EMBA is the trademarked name of The Mutation Mink Breeders Association. In 1942, a group of mink fur farmers joined forces to form a marketing cooperative. These ranchers specialised in mink fur in clear bright colours to which they gave distinctive trade names. EMBA often bought full page ads in Vogue magazine in cooperation with various designers and manufacturers of mink coats and stoles to promote their exclusive products. Only mink held to the highest standard of excellence was sold under the EMBA trademark.
