Detail embroidery, sleeved waistcoat, England (Spitalfields), c. 1734. Brown ribbed silk, richly brocaded with coloured silks, chenille and silver threads. The dense pattern of large flowers is typical of the 1730s, and corresponds to similar designs found in embroidery of the period. The lavish use of metal thread extends to the buttons, which are composed of a wooden core covered with silver foil and thread.
