18th/19th century Fife Hunt ‘club’ coat.

Who-whoop! I have been lucky enough to secure ownership of this magnificent hunt ‘club’ coat, sold recently at specialist period fashion and haute couture auctioneers Kerry Taylor Auctions in Bermondsey, London.  In style, the coat is late 18th century, but the plated (silver on copper) buttons place it in the first quarter of the 19th. There are solid silver buttons with this design also known. It’s more likely to have been worn for dinners and social gatherings than wear in the hunting field. It’s a veritable museum piece with a total of seventeen large buttons and four cuff-sized. My thanks to Kerry for allowing me to use her images.
