1780-1789. Man's Cutaway Coat

Description

Brown/green striped velvet coat that does not close but gradually tapers from center front neck to the sides and has a center back vent. Coat has a 3.5" high stand collar and long two piece sleeves with 4" wide self fabric cuffs. The front is cut on the bias so stripes angle in toward the neck. The coat has 2 deep - 12" wide hip pockets with shaped pocket flaps. Four inch wide floral sprig (daisy, and other wild flowers) embroidery decorates the center front, cuffs, back, collar and pockets, along with a line of off-white satin stitch and satin-stitch covered paper circles. Nine fabric and embroidery-covered buttons and button holes decorate the front of the coat; six button holes are cut open, 4 have uncut embroidered lines. Three buttons decorate each sleeve and each pocket. The coat is lined with off-white silk satin except for the center back which is flannel. The embroidery sections are reinforced with jute backing. There is no lining in the sleeves.
