Regency spencer jacket

made of gold-green silk

Period: around 1810 - 1825

The Spencer jackets are cut in a similar way to the tops of the Regency dresses, i.e. with the waist clearly set upwards.
A common motif in early 19th century fashion is the garland of leaves, which in this design are applied to the jacket as a sculptural appliqué. Silk fabrics in various shades of gold and green were chosen as the material. The puffed upper sleeves over tight lower sleeves, borrowed from Renaissance fashion, are also typical of the period.
An original in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg served as a model.
