George Iii (c.1790) Silk/satin And Embroidered Waistcoat - For Restoration For Sale

George Iii (c.1790) Silk/satin And Embroidered Waistcoat - For Restoration

This late 18th century waistcoat has been hand-embroidered on a ribbed silk/satin fabric on an ivory coloured ground. The front is heavily embroidered, and the silk threads have retained their vibrant colours. Smaller embroidered motifs are scattered over the rest of the front. The pockets need a few stitches to anchor them back to the background fabric. The embroidery threads are good, but some of the black stitchery - notably down one side of the front opening, has disappeared. As my photos show, there is light staining under the arms, and under each arm there is a little tear (pic.6). The lining could do with replacing, as it is discoloured, and there is a small tear in the back. Sometimes these old waistcoats are rebacked and relined - this would make a very attractive wedding waistcoat.Or, it could be mounted and framed as a picture. It does need to go to someone who can restore this. Measurements: from front underarm to front underarm - 50cms (excluding back). This waistcoat came from the Estate of Angus McBean, the Society Photographer.
