Additional Notes: Traditional vest from the Schaumburg region of Germany made of embroidered black velvet. This style of vest was worn with both the Lindhorst (east) and Buckeburg (west) variations of the local costume. The bottom half of the vest is decorated with a woven silk ribbon and the colored threads have been noticeably worn away with use. The colors are still visible, but there are areas where the pattern is almost completely gone. While this is not how the vest looked when it was new, it still looks very nice in this state with simply more black than originally. 10 handmade buttons on the front.
