Antique c. 1910 waistcoat has a single-breasted, v-neck silhouette; vibrant striped silk brocade front; and dark grey polished cotton back. It has two pockets, lined in cream cotton as is the body, and closes with 5 celluloid bullseye buttons. A steel buckle and martingale help adjust the fit in back.

Undoubtedly the focal point of this striking waistcoat is its brocade, which features alternating bands of merlot and magenta that have narrower, jacquarded “ribbons” of lime-green or silver-grey and powder blue down their centers.

The waistcoat appears to be both homemade and very well loved, with (crudely) hand-done buttonholes (photo #6) and patched portions to the cotton, both inside the neck and on the inside tops of the shoulders (photo #7).

It measures: Chest 35”, waist 34”, length 21.5” from shoulder seam to hem.

Good condition, sturdy and with the brocade intact, free of any fading, stains, or weakening to the fabric. Issues are the aforementioned patches in the cotton, foxing to the interior lining, mild colorfade to the back as well as a faint 2” waterstain on the lower left (photo #7), and rust on the buckle.
