Antique waistcoat late 18C

This is a men's waistcoat from the late 18th Century. It is entirely hand sewn and is fashioned of silk, linen and flax. The piece has a loop and button closure. The buttons are a cotton crochet and the loops are fashioned of cotton braid. The piece has elaborate braid down the center front. There is braid at the arm cycle edges. There was a fabric , stiff in nature that at one time backed the loops; it is deteriorated and you can only see bits of it. The cotton braid that was sewn to it is still there.
