1940s Polly Prentiss Chenille Cape Beach Cover Up

$ 98.00

Perfect for beachside or poolside, this chenille cape is the ultimate summer accessory for any glamorous bathing beauty! 

Fashioned in a vibrant and patriotic red and blue striped chenille on a soft white cotton, this beautiful cape sits atop the shoulders and ties at the neck with a red tasseled cord. 

These capes are getting harder and harder to find. This one is a rare treat because it has the original maker's tag. Many of these were handmade. While this one is not in the best condition, it still is a real treasure and has lots of life left! 


Size: One size fits most

Length: 30"

Label: Polly Prentiss

Condition: Good

There are a number of faint to light stains and small holes on the inside of the cape. They are all contained to one small area. (See photos). Given the busy striped pattern and the thickness of the chenille, the majority of these stains/holes are not visible. However, some can be seen upon close inspection. There is one darker, more noticeable stain on the front near the opening hem. Holes could be fixed or worn as is. Cape is structurally sound and completely wearable. Priced accordingly.
