Wow! What a statement this Victorian cloak or coat tassel would make for Steampunk or Gothic costuming! The long black tassel features a medallion at the top, made with rope braid laid in a circle.
Surrounding the braid is a fringe of black fur. Perhaps dyed rabbit. The same fur is repeated on the three pom poms at the bottom of the tassel. The rope braid is used throughout the tassel, some in long pieces, and other in a large knot. (see photos for details).
The tassel measures 22-1/2" long x 4-1/2" diameter, at the widest point. Although probably removed from a garment, it is very nice. Perhaps though, at the bottom, there should be four pom poms rather than three.
