Caraco, ca. 1780. Origin: France. The caraco is a (lap) jacket popular until the 1790s, often worn with a skirt of different color. Variant à l' Anglaise with dividing seams in the back. Made of precious blue (brocade) silk. Semi-circular neckline. Delicate gauze or batiste cloths covered the décolleté and were tucked into the neckline of the caraco. For clarity we took precious lace for it. Three-quarter length sleeves with lace trim. Reinforced back with a wooden stick. Front closure by means of lacing. For the age: very well preserved. Underarm stains (on a smaller tailor's mannequin these would not be visible), minor holes in the lace. Replaced laces. Decoration is not included.
