Wonderful, a particularly nice pair of closed drawers, beautifully made. These would have kept you warm! The superior buttons are unusual. Linen covered, their centres with a hole edged with brass, to reveal two holes and the cotton fastening.


The waistband with a central button on opening and fastened to the shaped fall front with three linen covered buttons, further button fastenings to the opening sides, very roomy, the cuffs with a band of cutwork above a cutwork and scalloped frill.

Waist 30 in;77 cm.

Front to hem 28 in;70 cm


Excellent. I wonder whether they were worn.
