SOLD

An original Men's waistcoat dating from the late Victorian period or the early part of the 20th Century.

This style of waistcoat was popular in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods when contrasting waistcoats were in fashion. This example is typical of the era being made from a black coloured wool. It features a high buttoning closure which is typical of late Victorian and Edwardian waistcoats and the buttons are fabric covered which is again common to find during this period. The rear features a cinchback belt and buckle arrangement as is usually found on waistcoats of this vintage.

The waistcoat is a medium size which will fit around a 40" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures - 

Chest - 20 1/2"
Shoulders - 14"
Length at back - 20 1/2"
Length at front - 25"

The waistcoat is in good condition considering it is over 100 years old. There are no serious flaws or issues with some marks and some light staining to the lining as illustrated in the pictures. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that it is a pre-worn vintage jacket which may have small flaws commensurate with age. 

All in all a nice early 20th Century waistcoat which would make a great addition to any wardrobe or collection.
