1750 – 1800s Dress Uniform Tail Coat — Metallic Embroidered Cuffs, Collar, Etc. For Sale

1750 – 1800s Dress Uniform Tail Coat — Metallic Embroidered Cuffs, Collar, Etc.

A formal cutaway officer’s dress tail coat dating to the last half 18th or early 19th centuries, based on design, style and handwork.

An extremely fine and rare example of an early hand-stitched rich, dark green military dress uniform style tail coat.

In a deep green fine woolen fabric. Rounded cutaway front with single hook and eye at the breast, gilt metal embroidery on stand up highly decorated collar, shaped pocket flaps, back tails, and stiff turned-back cuffs. Formal gold buttons front, sides and back.

Tail pockets accessed from back vent are in perfect condition. One has never been opened and has its original stitches intact. The original silk lining aged out and is long gone. However that reveals its fascinating hand-sewn construction, with raw (probably flax or linen) facings and padding – apparently homespun facings and finer linen lining pieces showing.

Lace shirt pieces extending from cuffs apparently added, perhaps for costume use.

Two false pocket flaps are located on the hips on the coat at the waist. The entire coat is sewn entirely by hand, and the stitches are incredible. Overall, given the age of the coat, the condition is superb aside from the missing silk lining.

It has the usual aging for a coat of this vintage, some tarnish to the metal – but otherwise this coat is wonderful. It will make an excellent addition to any museum exhibit, private textile collection, or to anyone looking to study and replicate early 19th century men’s clothing.

While this is being sold as a display/museum item, it could be worn and is approximately size 42R. Center rear total length 42", sleeves 18" inseam underarm to cuff.

Rare to find anything like it on the open market in any condition.

The coat is really in stunning condition with no damage, mothing or tears detected. The quality of the super fine cloth, hand stitching and metal detailing are all trademarks of a garment of its era. Full compliment of coat-of-arms buttons. The photographs do not do this garment justice however I feel confident people will appreciate what is on offer here.

No makers labels or evidence of any previous owners.
