British 13th Hussars Officer’s 1903 Mess Dress Jacket
High quality black wool jacket with white collar, cuffs, and shoulder straps, all faced with gold bullion tape. Rank insignia for Major. Interior lining shows wear, and at certain spots the exterior gold facing is a bit loose from loss of some threads. An interior neck label is dated 1903 and identifies the owner as a Major Lowry, and the tailor as “Rankin & Co., Calcutta, Simla, Lamore, Rawal, Pindle”. Overall very good condition.
