A 1st or Royal Dragoons Officer`s Victorian Tunic

A 1st or Royal Dragoons Officer`s Victorian scarlet melton cloth and dark blue velvet regimental pattern Tunic. The tunic retains all its gilt brass two piece buttons and retains its double Austrian knot cuff detail in gold cord and Russia braid showing the rank of Captain.
The collar is edged in gold regimental pattern lace and Russia braid on top of dark blue velvet. Sadly one of the embroidered French Eagles is missing from the collar. The reverse of the tunic retains the cord and Russia braid skirt ornaments one of which is partially unstitched. The interior lining is essentially shot and in very delicate condition which nonetheless does not detract from the very nice overall condition of the tunic exterior.
