C18th Floral Waistcoat (WC220)

Availability: In stock

These magnificent waistcoats are replicas of original hand embroidered garments.
Autumn Wheat dates from around 1780 and Summer Rose slightly later around 1790-1800.
These exquisite garments were very popular at the time for formal evening wear.
We have painstakingly re-created the original garments using digital print technology which from a distance is almost indistinguishable from the real embroidery.
The pattern is similarly an exact copy of the shape used at the time. Even the covered buttons are printed for absolute authenticity.
Printed on cotton/viscose ottoman which has a slightly ribbed surface and the back is fawn silesia cotton.
Summer Rose is taken from an original garment owned by Worthing Museum in Sussex.
We are currently making these to order with a delivery time of approximately 3-4 weeks although some sizes are kept in stock.

There are currently six chest sizes available but we plan to make for larger sizes. Please contact us for details.
