This waistcoat came described
as 1840s, and the proportions and the way it laces in the back point to
earlier than later. It is all hand sewn and the pattern in the silk
brocade, the crowns with three plumes, is the Welsh royal crest, so
this is believed to be from a royal household. It measures 34" in the
chest, 30" waist and 18" long.
