A green damask bodice of 1730s Spitalfields silk. Spitalfields is a weaving village near London, England, which produced a certain kind of silk. It was of extremely high quality and could easily compete with French silk on the world market. This bodice and this waistcoat are made of such silk. Origin: England, ca. 1790. The closed front with draw-string closure, boned, pointed back point; together with matching waistcoat panels, probably for a woman, with faux cord gilt metal buttons. Very good condition. Missing lining on the backside from the waistcoat. The decoration is not included.
