From the seller:
Early gent's silk satin waistcoat with high neck collar,silk embroidery and with tiny sequins in the design.

Item Measurements:


Item condition:

In mainly good strong condition,there are two wear areas near armholes and soem age stains.a few very small openings on back and some fraying on edge..Overall good and strong. Inner lining very good, some dark age marks.All items we list need to be cleaned.

From Me:

I'm putting it more between 1785-1795. Look at this fashion plate from the early 1790's and check out the gentleman in the middle's waistcoat.
