Fantastic US Navy Civil War uniform

Desirable Civil War enlisted man’s naval uniform including both the jumper and trousers, entirely hand-stitched and constructed of fine blue wool. The jumper has a straight-cut body with rounded corners at the bottom and 3.5″ slits on each side with hand-whipped grommets to allow the use of a drawstring. It features two white cotton stripes around the bib and single stripes on the cuffs, which have two-button closures with one wooden and one gutta percha button on each. The jumper also features decorative hand-whipped ‘darts’ at the upper corners of the single breast pocket. The trousers have an 11″ wide bib front with five buttonholes along the top as well as four vertical buttonholes at the waist, retaining all original four hole stained wooden buttons. They are lined inside the waist area with lighter blue polished cotton and retain the original black cotton drawstring. A few repairs and minor moth holes, otherwise fine condition. A rarely encountered example. Provenance: Heritage Auctions.
