Antique 1910s Embroidered Sailor Top with Tassels


Such a rare piece!  Unbleached flax (or maybe hemp) with a slightly stiff feel.  Sailor collar with a lace up front.  Lace up at sides.  Hand embroidery accents in the Arts and Crafts style.  Contrast stitching.  Most probably from Eastern Europe based on the embroidery.  Meant to be worn oversized.
