Jimi Hendrix vibes in this late 19th Century antique Ottoman Turkish bolero vest. Decadent gold embroidery patterns on top of thick grey cotton canvas with red, green, blue and purple velvet accents make this a truly special piece. Lapels/collar are ochre colored velvet. There are 4 outside front pockets. Lining is new and has an added zipper pocket. Vest has no closure.
In very good antique condition, and very wearable. Shows normal signs of wear.
There are the following issues(see photos for details):
