Mid 18th Century Men's Waistcoat

From the seller:

A rare 18th Century 1740-1760 beige silk and metallic gold vest. The vest is all hand stitched. The front of the vest, side faux pockets and hemline have a woven gold metallic floral pattern. The faux pockets flare to the side. The front has hand stitched button holes. The buttons are missing. The vest is backed and lined with linen. The vest is in sturdy condition. There is a nickel size age spot on the front and one on the shoulder. There are a few period mends that are hand done. They measure from 1 inch to 9 inches. The longest one is over the faux pocket. There is some mild underarm discoloration. (See photos of age flaws.) Chest 34 Waist 34 Length 30.
