Early 19C antique mens vest waistcoat c 1820

This is a fantastic waistcoat or vest as we would call it today from the early 19C. I have a collection going up here on Ruby Lane within the next few days and they are spectacular. This one is entirely hand stitched. The stitches are so little and tiny that I do wonder if they in fact did their tailoring under a magnifier. The waistcoat is fashioned of a ribbed cotton, with a white linen lining and back. There are 4 places on the back where the twill ties were once attached. They are no longer present just bits of them still sewn onto the vest back. The vest has the name Daniel E Burnap stamped inside. The closure on this waistcoat is a front button closure. All of the buttons are tiny covered buttons.

Condition: There is 1 pinhole that I can see. There is some surface dirt and light staining. I have not cleaned this piece. It is so old and rare I want to leave that to the new owner. It is in very good antique condition, and wearable if you wish.

Color: Cream

Content: cotton, linen

Age: Early 19th Century circa 1820

Size: Very small in size; Armpit to armpit measures 15" across the chest. Shoulder edge to shoulder edge across the back measures 10"; please note this has a deep cut armcycle that tapers at the shoulder. Back neckline to hemline measures 19".
