1855-1865 American Child's wool jacket at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - What's interesting about this piece is the white fabric trim that is meant to simulate ermine. Historically, ermine has been associated with royalty and nobility, so it's interesting to see it being imitated on a child's garment.
1725-1740 Jacket (Casaquin) and Petticoat. Crewel work on linen. The exotic figures represent the Four Continents amid exuberant flowers, fruits, and birds. Among the architectural elements are small pagodas, which came to symbolize the Far East in the European decorative arts. Via The Met.
Lovely young lady. Zouave style jacket over what looks like a yoked boat neck bodice. Medici belt, and lovely hat. With her skirts being short, she is either right at 16, but likely younger.
