Antique Victorian Beaded Plush Velvet Cape, with issues, Gothic Mourning

ERA: 1800s
MEASUREMENTS: The cape is 27 inches long, 16 inches across the shoulders, 103 inches around the bottom
MATERIAL: plush velvet with glass beading
LABEL: none

Heavy black, plush velvet cape with black beaded designs and loops of flat rayon cord around the back and on the collar too. It has a black polished cotton lining. It once had fur trim that has been removed with remnants remaining around the collar. Hooks down the front.

CONDITION: The cape is in good condition. There are a few spots with loose or missing beads. Fur trim was removed previously from the front edges of the cape. The removal of the trim has left the velvet flat along the front edges.
There is still some worn out fur trim around the collar, it's basically leather with some matches of fur. This needs to be removed, but then the edges of the collar will be raw and will need to be sewn or covered with a different binding trim to cover the raw edges. The collar has sections of beads missing too.
