Royal Blue jacket 1895 - 1905

 The outside of the coat is decorated with black cotton passementerie braid at the front lapels, around the collar edge, down center front, around the hem to the back. Center back has a large motif as well as do the lower edges of sleeve hems. There are two hand finished button holes 1 1/4" wide with a set of four mother of pearl buttons that close the double breast.

This is a work of art! I would get it in red as well. Can't you just picture it in red?
