Court coat

probably British

Not on view

The elegance and grandeur of 1770s and 80s court dress is displayed in this court coat. The magnificent array and abundance of silver decorations used to adorn the jacket would have sparkled in flickering candlelight and indicated the status of the wearer who could afford such an expensive garment.
