1780's Open Front Jacket
From the seller:
Circa 18THC. a fine French silk brocade bodice, part of a museum deaccession of early items. In mainly good strong condition, ssome small splits near top of the bodice at the back,very narrow lace missing on edge of one sleeve.,a couple of other very small splitsand age realted wear.Overall in VEY GOOD strong condition
This one reminds of the jacket at Centre de Documentació i Museu Tèxtil. Neither provide a date but based on the cutaway style, I'm thinking 1780's.
