Coat with dotted pattern, Anonymous, c. 1775 - c. 1800

silk, l 116cm × w 35cm. More details

In the final quarter of the 18th century coats became ever more tight-fitting. The sleeve inset was higher on the shoulder and further back than today. The front panels were cut back from the chest down. The neckline was not deep in this period, and the standing collar was high. This fabric’s pattern of red dots is interspersed with a scattered twig motif.
