Measuring a whopping 65” x 48”, this is the largest and best Victorian mourning veil I’ve ever had in my care. The hem and the length tell me this was a first mourning or deep mourning veil, which could have been shortened throughout the mourning period. At this size, it also would have been useful for draping mirrors or using as a decorative swag. This particular kind of crepe, treated with chemicals to create this distinctive texture and matte finish, was only used for mourning. It appears on hats, buttons, dresses; etc. and is your telltale sign the garments that you’re looking at were mourning clothes.

Condition is excellent without any rips or odors.
