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"
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.
