Description

They had a short tail, very much like a riding jacket with which Mary Curtis compared them in 1877. Mrs Morgan (1791) says they were blue or brown, while other contemporary descriptions state that they were brown or dark red. Three surviving examples are in museums: two brown, the other dark red. They have short sleeves on which there is a narrow band of watered silk. They have two buttons at the small of the back. Only one skirts of this fabric is known to survive.
The surviving examples probably date to the end of the 19th or early 20th centuries.
