Delicately hand-painted to emulate silken hand stitches, Court Embroidery is inspired by an early 19th century waistcoat from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection. This courtier;s garment is a beautiful example of a time when gentlemen;s clothing was as fine, if not more elaborate, than those of a lady. Court dress was a signifier of opulence, wealth and position. Trimmings, embellishment and embroidery were often employed to provide a dazzlingly rich effect, with exquisite needlework and sumptuous fabric admired by both male and female members of court.
