Caraco and skirt

made from silk lampas

Period: 2nd half of the 18th century

The caraco (lap jacket) and skirt are made of precious silk lampas in the typical wave-like pattern of the Rococo period. The peplums of the jacket are cut and it is fastened at the front with hooks and eyelets.

The skirt is worn over a small panier. The ensemble is completed with a fichu (shawl) made of cotton muslin.
The costume was made according to original patterns and purchased by the city of Paderborn for the reopening of the Residenzmuseum Schloss Neuhaus.
