Coat and waistcoat worn by Peter II, 1727–1730
Coat and waistcoat, France,1727–1730, Silk velvet and silk taffeta with silver embroidery

In this ensemble the silk of the waistcoat and coat cuffs has faded considerably. It was once a vibrant pink, an elegant contrast to the deep blue velvet of the coat. Both garments are decorated in silver embroidery, worked separately then applied to the velvet and taffeta, rather than embroidered directly onto the coat and waistcoat. | The Moscow Kremlin Museums via V&A
