- Delaware beaded woman's cape is made from trade cloth and Czechoslovakian original trade beads. This piece was collected by Helen Shepard in the 1930's and was owned by the Barrett family of Northfield, MA. The original tag bearing the known owner history remains attached. The cape comes with a 2001 appraisal that includes photos and description. It is described as, "Museum quality with no damage and very rare." The intricate bead work is exceptional. The back of the cape has slight discoloration around the edges which would be considered age appropriate and from being worn. The cape dates circa 1830. It measures 26" at the widest part and is 16" from top to bottom.
