Spencer jacket

Period: around 1810 - 1825

This short spencer coat was crafted from two color-coordinated silk fabrics. Their sculptural appliqués were typical for this kind of clothing. In this case we used a festoon of leaves, which are often found on clothing and coats from this epoch. 
The wide puffy upper sleeves, which are actually borrowed from Renaissance fashion, are also very common features of these jackets.
