Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautiful original Civil War officer's frock coat that displays well. The jacket is constructed of deep blue, almost black wool material that retains all of its nine D. Evans Button Company made infantry officer style eagle buttons on the front. These buttons were manufactured by the famous D. Evans Company that was located in Attleboro, Massachusetts. The coat is constructed with distinctively tailored sleeves with the 8 inch elbows and then narrowing dramatically at the cuffs and tufted shoulders. On the reverse of the coat, the tail buttons are still present and it has the tail pockets inside. On the shoulders are stitched a pair of Infantry 2nd Lieutenant's shoulder straps with blue velvet centers now faded to a beautiful pale blue color. This is a very well-crafted coat. The top has the original collar that measures 2 inches tall. One thing that is neat about this coat is that it has a custom style scalloped pocket on the left hand breast of the coat front. When the coat is opened, the crafting of the inner lining shows that this garment was finely tailored not just quickly assembled. The interior has the typical quilted green polished cotton body lining. The sleeves of the coat are correct and date it to Civil War era. The white sleeve lining is present and they have aged to a petty tan color. It has the name "BLAIR" written in old ink. This piece of history came from the museum like personal collection of Mathew Woodburn. This is an attractive coat that was actually used and is not just a surplus piece and displays superbly.
