Front view of a waistcoat embroidered with leaves and flowers, in the Wade collection.

England 1700-25. Linen and possibly cotton dimity, hand-sewn with linen thread, embroidered with silk thread. This linen pocket worked with silk thread is unfinished. The embroidery is complete and the pocket back and front sewn together. However, the outside edge and opening have not yet been bound, nor the tie sewn on. It may have been recycled from another textile. The design of individual small floral motifs with spiky leaves and petals indicates the influence of Indian.
