1830s Ivory Brocade Waistcoat, Chest-36
Purchased in France, this amazing waistcoat dates to c.1830. The waistcoat is an ivory silk fall with an ivory baroque swirl and a tiny black and red floral pattern. Shawl collar and tiny fabric covered buttons down the front. Inset welt pockets on the front waist. Muslin back panel with a lacing tab at the waistline. What's very interesting is that the inside hemline on the front is edged in green leather.
Condition: Ages spots on the back and minor perspiration stains.
