Satin Hunting Coat c. 1620

Harkening back a little earlier to the period of the Plimoth Jacket (1620-1630), here is a yummy silk embroidered satin hunting coat made in India (Mugal) at the Victoria and Albert Museum.  I would love that!  There are many pictures on the catalog entry on the V&A site as well as a close up image.  Definitely in the style of embroidery of the period, but distinctly not English.  It is lovely and I had to share it when I stumbled upon it today.
