Sold

Ca. 1876

    A regimental Jacket of a Lieutenant Colonel of the 57th (West Middlesex) Regiment, made of fine red wool with yellow cuffs and collar.   The jacket is handstitched, with the top being padded and quilted, the gilt embroidery denoting the status of the officer.  The buttons, all original, bear the insignia of the 57th (West Middlesex), and the collar carries the Lt Colonel’s insignia of a Crown and Star.  The back of the jacket is a short tail coat with regimental buttons ornamenting the tails.  The elaborate trimming, in original gilt thread, would have been sewn by hand.   The metalware on the jacket was made by the reknowned company of Firmin & Sons, established in 1655 and it is highly likely that the jacket was made by them as well.   This uniform was made for Lt Colonel A A D Weigall, who was gazetted Lt Colonel on November 28 1876, and who died during the Regiment’s campaign on the North West Frontier.
