A BEAUTIFUL RED AND BLACK CARACO OR EARLY SPENCER. FRENCH ca.1790

This lovely piece of early costume is in red silk with a black velvet stripe. It has ties at the neck and slightly elevated waist and three quarter length sleeves.

It is well designed and very stylish. I think the later Spencer grew from this type of little jacket.

There is a beige cotton lining and of course this delightful item is all hand stitched.

Measurements: Length from back neck 14". Across shoulders: 16" and across bust approximately 16".

The condition is excellent, and I see no faults at all.

Price: USD $800.-
