Cloak of silk satin damask trimmed with silver-gilt braid. Composed of several pieces, abutting at right angles, of pink-red 5-end satin damask with a large-scale pattern of foliage motifs within an ogival lattice of leafy stems linked by crowns. The embroidery, in couched gold thread and gold cord, consists of a three inch border all round (including the collar) of linked curved twigs each bearing a single leaf, and radiating over the body of the cloak are five bands of wave ornament. The cloak forms about three-quarters of a circle.
