    Kashmir, late 19th century

    Woven wool embroidered in an elaborate pattern, with silver and silver-gilt wrapped threat.

    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.
