Standard neckwear for men of the 1830s years. A shaped band fastened at the back of the neck with ties, a large metal buckle. This type of neckcloth was introduced to general society by King George IV in 1822. The Whole Art of Dress, an 1830 guide to men’s fashion, described The Royal George style of stock as being composed of “the richest black Genoa velvet and satin” and tied into a small gordian knot with short broad ends. These were worn over the high stand collar of the shirt. Call it a cravat, neckscarf, or stock collar. This one is in remarkable condition! As seen in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.
