1770's Men's Waistcoat

From the seller:

Antique 1700's Mens Waistcoat Monochrome EMBROIDERY Vest Linen Colonial 3706

2 flap pockets, embroidered buttons

lovely floral embroidery

silk front; back is linen

Length 24"; Armpit to armpit 18"


museum deaccession

From Me:

I think this probably is from about the time of the American Revolution. ...and that the embroidery looks like either palm trees or those weird fern things people like to have in hanging pots.
