This is a full-length opera cape, made by Liberty and Company of England at some stage between 1920 and 1925. It is made of painted multicoloured silk with metallic weft threads creating an extravagant design of flowers and leaves. Intricately shaped across the shoulders, the cape gathers at the neck with a centre front opening that fastens with long tabs which have teardrop-shaped weighted ends. The dark brown fur collar has press studs at the corners to secure it when folded over. The cape is fully lined in gold-coloured metallic silk with a patch pocket on the wearer's inside right at the front.
