Schaube (men's coat)

for the Maximilian-Museum Augsburg

Period: 1544, Germany

The reconstruction of the Schaube (wide-cut men's coat from the German Renaissance) was commissioned by the Maximilian Museum in Augsburg.
Initially shown in the special exhibition ‘Dressed for Success’, it was subsequently transferred to the general permanent exhibition.

The design is based on an illustration from 1544 depicting the mayor of Augsburg at the time. The garment was made from black silk moiré, lined with mink and fitted with a collar made from wild mink. The furs are old and recycled material. The tight undersleeves are made of silk velvet in a typical Renaissance pattern.
