Victorian jacket? Identification

jaydahnFebruary 27, 2013


This is another item which I found at the same estate sale as the teapots I'm trying to identify. This is, I think, a Victorian, maybe mourning jacket? I am going to attach a few more pictures. It is in gorgeous condition considering the age. If you think you have any ideas of age, value etc. I would love any feedback on it :)

All I see is a dark blob on a dark background. Please post some pictures with better lighting so the sleeve detail can be seen. And the general shape of the jacket body.

lazygardens - try adjusting your monitor. :) I can see the jacket very well on mine so your computer's contrast may be off. It looks like late Victorian, but I'm no expert. It's absolutely beautiful!

Possibly so, lazygardens, but they might look even better with your monitor adjusted. I'm looking at the jacket photos on a mini laptop and can see the detail quite well, though I would like to see the sleeves stretched out so I can tell if it's actually a jacket or a capelet.

I don't know clothing, but that garment appears to me as old style and high quality. It is something m'lady would wear to church or a formal gathering. It could be funeral attire. My guess for a date is 1900.

I, too, can see the pictures just fine on my iPad. Pretty jacket.

Is it handsewn?
