Liberty & Co. of London evening cape ca. 1900-1910 via The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"Produced in one of Liberty’s trademark high-quality silks, the rich yellow satin of this cape is draped in the fashion of Middle Eastern outerwear. Its elegant simplicity is relieved by the distinctive curvilinear pattern of overlapping silk cord that sinuously loops around itself. It is a good early 20th-century example of the Art Nouveau design that was synonymous with Liberty & Co."
