Short women's cape made of long, dark brown fur. The cape has a wide collar that goes all the way around from the front to the back and folds down. There is a center opening with five metal loops on the left side and five hooks on the right. Just below the top hook and loop closure, there is a metal chain attached to the right side that has a clip on the end that attaches to a loop on the left side of the opening. The fur has a variegated appearance and has shiny top fur and a thick under fur of a lighter brownish gray color. At the bottom of the central opening, there are two dark brown tails hanging from each side. The inside of the coat is lined in an olive green silk. There are two small interior pockets, on either side of the opening. At the top along the neckline is a narrow strip of olive green silk attached at the ends to form a loop.
