Mid-19th Century Cotton Trapunto Vest, Slots For Chest Pads, Owner ID
This white cotton vest is made from a trapunto fabric, the cotton woven to imitate stuffed quilt work. It has a shawl collar, self fabric covered buttons, two slots inside at the chest for pads. It’s signed “H Knights” in ink twice, there is also a “10x” written at the edge of the sleeve, not sure what it would indicate. There are tabs in back, no metal clasp, however. It’s 38″ around at the chest, 19″ long, measured in back. The trapunto is good. The bottom button has lost it’s filling, which was most likely wood, the cover remains. There is a 1/4 split at the edge of one underarm, one small area of wear at the fold to the collar. If you look under the shawl collar, both seams need to be resewn, there is also a tear at one side with some fraying. This doesn’t show unless you look under the collar, however. The missing metal buckle has left some brownish discoloration and two holes to one of the tabs. There is a tiny brown spot just starting to wear through in back, a few inches below the collar. One pocket needs to be resewn to the side seam. The trapunto is in good condition, not worn through. The chest pads are missing.
