Antique 18th Century Silk Embroidered French Court Gentlemen Waistcoat Vest

This rare antique 18th century silk embroidered French court gentlemen waistcoat vest dates from between 1770 to 1790. It is hand stitched, made of a off white ivory cream color silk fabric, with colorful pastel silk thread hand embroidery work done in chain stitch needlework floral designs, with tiny silver metal sequin and bullion thread accents. This regal gentlemen's French court waistcoat vest is a long mid length, sleeveless, with a rounded neckline, no collar, decorative embroidered buttons down the front for closure, pocket flaps on each side, with a linen backing and is fully lined. The vest measures 30 inches long, with a 40 inch waist and 40 inch chest. These elaborately embroidered suits and waistcoats were worn by wealthy men on formal occasions, particularly in attendance to court. Professional needle workers in France produced astonishing designs by hand with silk threads and the fabric was then cut, custom made and sewn to fit. It is in good condition, with only some slight fraying along the bottom silk lining at the inside hem. This is truly a superb rare and wonderful piece of wearable early needlework textile art!
