1820s

Jacket
Wool trimmed with velvet
Buttons
Metal

 

This coat, with its metal buttons decorated with running hare motifs, would have been worn for the sport of hare-coursing. It has a deep pocket, almost to hem level, on either side of the inside of the back skirt, intended, in theory at least, to carry the dead hare.
