It has a 16" neck and is approximately elbow length. It is deeply edged with green velvet.   This VICTORIAN lady wears a lovely ruffled, beaded and appliqued CAPE.

Au Bon Marché
is the oldest (1852) and most stylish department store in Paris. For 150 years, well-to-do Parisians have been able to spend pleasant afternoons selecting various luxury items and elegant designer fashions, Oriental carpets and unusual antiques. 
   Triple border of  RUFFLES at bottom over green velvet border. I would estimate this to be a size 8-10, but because it is made as an almost full circle, it would fit a smaller or slightly larger size as well.  Tag marked, "Au Bon Marche, Maison A. Boucicault, Paris". There is a 2-1/2" tear on the inside right at the neckline seam, but no other damage that I can see.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
