Kashmir, late 19th century

Note:

This type of large long-sleeved and open-fronted outer garment would have been worn by noblemen all over Northern India during formal meetings. It is profusely embroidered with exotic designs mirrored in Kashmir shawl designs of the period, such as exaggerated botch shapes, long scalloped leaf designs, stylized flowers and cypress tree shapes.
