Late 18th Century Men's Waistcoat
From the seller:
A early gentleman' silk waistcoat with Beauvais embroidery.
In mainly good strong condition, there is one 2" tear at side of vest..otherwise age related spots.spots on inner lining..All items we list need to be cleaned.
No measurements, unfortunately, with this one. It's similar in overall shape to this once at LACMA. The collar, the length, and the straight bottom edge are all very similar. This waistcoat is most likely from the earlier part of the 1790's.
