Tucked away, a fabulous men's waistcoat made of a cream color cord fabric front of a rayon silk, with the back of sateen fabric.  This fab vest dates from the Edwardian era with is long curved collar, two slash pockets and a watch pocket.

Four shank pearl buttons fasten the lower front.  The shanks are in a hidden placket area on the inside of the vest, This allows the shanks/buttons to be removed for easy cleaning.  A metal buckle, on the back, fastens the fabric tabs for fitting at the waist.

The vest front is lined with the same sateen that is used for the back.  A very nicely made vest with gussets on the side seams to also give a good fit.  No labels as to manufacture nor any size tags.  

Measurements:  22" long from the shoulder seam to the point in front.  14" across the shoulder from one to the other.  34" completely around the waist. From the shoulder to the armhole opening it is 9" long.  9"long from under arm to the hem measuring at the side seam. At the back, measuring from the center seam from the neck to hem it is 19-1/2"long.  Measuring at the bottom of the arm hole opening completely around the front and back to the other side of the bottom of arm hole it is 40".  Hope this gives you an idea of the size.  I would suggest small size.  

Even if you couldn't wear it what a great display textile....or a study research garment.

Condition:  From storage it does have oxidation.  Not a lot but should be cleaned. Otherwise a beautiful vest.  It appears the vest was hardly worn.
