Silk Wedding coat 1895

This very old but gorgeous Cream Silk Coat has heavy embroidery large sleeves and original tassels.
I was told was worn by Maggie Hart on her wedding day in 1895 in Glasgow Scotland Her great granddaughter Judi Sheppard gave this to me for display purposes. She said the Maggie went on to have 5 children and her husband was a pharmacist who eventually moved his family to Vancouver canada. I love vintage items that have a story to tell

What a fantastic thing to own! I also love to know the backgound to a piece of vintage clothing, it makes a big difference!
