FRENCH NAPOLEONIC FIRST EMPIRE GENERAL VEST GILET:
In good general condition showing wear and some mothing. Beautiful general grade gilt embroidery on collar. Four original general buttons retaining almost all of their original gilt finish. Stitching is a mix of hand sewn and machine sewn and the vest is showing genuine age. It is unfortunately very hard to date it with exact precision. A beautiful and very rare item!
