This beautiful hand worked antique coat is of crewel embroidery work in bright reds, cornflower blue and greens. The border is in pale aqua. I love the moths or insects that are embroidered on the borders.

I don't know the origin of this but it was found with other items from the Victorian to 1920s period. this coat is completely hand made on what looks like a Linsey-woolsey fabric, and is lined in linen. It is simply amazing. It has no closures.
