A cope is a long and wide cloak, worn over shoulders and fastened on the chest during the Liturgy of the Hours, the celebration of the sacraments outside the Holy Mass, and the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The only ones authorized to wear it are bishops, presbyters, and deacons who received permission from the Holy See. The colour of the cloak worn during the liturgy was not unimportant.
Jan Branicki, the founder of the set, decided to purchase red vestments, as it is the colour worn during services commemorating the Holy Martyrs (which the church of Niepołomice is dedicated to).
The cope was made of red silk satin with a damask effect, a floral pattern brocaded with gold thread all over the material, and a floral pattern as a sub-ornament. The band passing from the front through the back is 30 cm wide, and it is trimmed with a gold border (galloon) with a geometric pattern 3 cm in width. The whole cope is trimmed with a 3 cm wide border. The cope has a hood on the back, which is 34 cm long and 50 cm wide, which was trimmed with a thin border with a geometric pattern and adorned with gold tassels tied at the stitch. The whole cope is lined with a red cotton fabric from a later period (20th century). The cope is fastened with a clasp sewn into the left side and a chain consisting of 6 links and a handle (made of gilded metal). Decorative metal elements are visible on the sides of the clasp. On the left side of the clasp there is a noticeable lack of silver ornament, and on the right, there is a medallion with a female head, which has been preserved.
