Frances Cleveland's fur-lined cape

Frances Cleveland’s eye for fashion continued well beyond the White House years. This example of her love of beautiful attire is on display at the Cleveland Birthplace in Caldwell, New Jersey. The styling reflects the Japanese influence on American costume during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
