1800s Winter Outfit – modern vintage photography

1800s Winter Outfit – modern vintage photography

Here are quite alot of pictures of a the full length 1890s velvet cloak, bonnet, and rabbit fur hand muff that I mostly didn’t post in my photography portfolio. They aren’t necessarily “amazing” photos, but they demonstrate the fit and finer details of the black velvet bonnet, cloak with a rabbit fur lined hood (it was falling apart, but the fur was so incredibly soft), and the rather plain hand muff.

The material is well made and luxurious. I can imagine the owner wearing this out on social visits around St. Louis, perhaps going for a sleigh ride or Christmas Caroling…

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
