Four gentlemen's waistcoats from the catalog of the Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851:
"In conformity with our plan of representing every meritorious producer of articles which exhibit improvements derived from the influence of art, we introduce upon this and the succeeding column four examples of the embroidered waistcoats contributed by Mr. J. W. GABRIEL,of London. The first two are worked in gold on rich silk and are designed mainly for court dresses; the other two are wrought in silk upon black cloth: the ornamentation is derived principally from natural flowers. The style of modern male attire affords little opportunity for the embroiderer and ornamentist to display their skill; the only garment which admits of the least approach to elegance being the vest; and even this is generally discarded by persons of good taste. In the patterns here engraved, however, we see much that is truly graceful." --The Art Journal Special Issue onThe Crystal Palace Exhibition, 1851
