Simply Breathtaking and a true testament to quality and craftmanship of it's time Victorian Silk Velvet Jacket. Features heavily beaded sleeves and bodice with jet beads and ribbon embroidery. As far as the original owner could describe, this is assumed to be a British made Jacket so could very well be made with famous Whitby Jet. It is rumoured this Jacket once belonged to the wife of one of Queen Victorias Navy Captains but unfortunately missing any relating paperwork. This Jacket is Museum Quality with only a very small amount of the beads missing, please see detailed images. Fastens at the front with hooks and eye. There is some very minor damage to the inside lining at the hook by the waist, please see detailed image. Fully lined.
