Description

William Hogarth, Marriage à la Mode, A visit to the quack (Detail) 1743-45

This light weight short cape was an essential of the 18th century woman’s wardrobe, available in a multitude of color and fabric choices. Many women preferred it over the heavy full size cloak. Woolen Mantelets provide warmth during winter time, made up of silk they stay cool in the summer.

One size fits most ladies.
