Court Embroidery Black Velvet Jacket
Our Court Embroidery Jacket is a revival design of an early 19th century waistcoat from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection. This courtier’s garment is a beautiful example of a time when gentlemen’s clothing was as fine, if not more elaborate, than those of a lady.
Court dress was a signifier of opulence, wealth and position. Trimmings, embellishment and embroidery were often employed to provide a dazzlingly rich effect, with exquisite needlework and sumptuous fabric admired by both male and female members of court.
Own this beautiful Court Embroidery Jacket for adding a charm of vintage opulence to your special occasion dressing and an heirloom to pass down.
