      Unique Vintage Hooded Wool Cape or Cloak, with Exquisite Trim

      I found this hooded wool cape or cloak which has great scroll trim work. It appears very old, but have not been able to find any information or anything like it after hours of internet research. I have a friend who is into military history and he thought it might be a prussian Army Officers cape, but I could not find anything when seraching for pictures of those, and one would think if that were true there would be something out there just like it. So any info you can provide as an appraiser will be helpful.

       

      Thank you

      Cloak

      My first thought was that the scrollwork pattern was representative of a musical score, and that the cloak might have been a uniform for a marching band leader; but I'm not sure. Have you tried uploading the image into the search feature of google images? I'll keep looking. Gary

      Unique Vintage Hooded Cape or Cloak, with Exquisite Trim Work!

      Thank you Gary. I did the Google upload of the photo as you recommended, to photo search, and nothing like it turned up.  Like with the military thought, if it was part of a  band uniform I would think I'd be able to find something like it. But its always fun when one finds a good mystery to try and solve! If you do run across anything, I would appreciate a note back. Thanks again for your time.
