1850s-60s black wool frock coat

Late to early black wool frock coat, thought to be a fine wool Melton with some fur content.

Although none of the lining would be visible when the coat was worn, the quilting is a thing of beauty. Tailoring had developed into an art form, which is particularly impressive considering that this garment predates the adoption of the sewing machine.
