Product Description

A unique dress uniform for an Officer in the Royal Irish Regiment, custom made in the style of the early 18th Century infantryman but made during the middle of the Victorian era.

The uniform consists of overcoat, waistcoat and breeches.

The red overcoat is made from wool and is heavily adorned with gold bullion thread. The collar and lapels are navy blue, as well as the oversized cuffs, which drape with crochet cotton. The waistcoat and breeches are made from cream-coloured wool and are lined with silk. The waistcoat is made from cream-coloured wool and is embellished with bullion thread. The breeches are also woolen.

The gilt brass buttons on the overcoat are either stamped ‘Firmin & Sons London’ or ‘Jennens & Co of London’. The Jennens mark with the Prince of Wales plume was used around 1860 and the ‘Firmin & Sons London’ mark was used sporadically between 1824 and 1875. The buttons on the breeches are made from ivory and are marked ‘L.G. Ward Hawkhurst’ in green writing.

Two solid silver badges, both with the Victorian crown, are attached to the collar of the overcoat.

The condition of the uniform is generally very good; the outside of the overcoat is beautifully preserved and shows no noticeable wear. The interior is also good, though the silk lining has lifted in areas and shows signs of mothing.
