18th c

Squee!

My latest addition to my collection of textiles. It's in horrible shape BUT I'm looking at it for the embroidery and less of the condition. The condition actually allows for a better view of the embroidery as a whole. It looks like it's from a late 18th c waistcoat. I'll probably preserve it in a shadowbox with a couple of other 18th/early 19th c items.
