Front Seam: 33½” • Price: $350

This farmer’s smock retains its original glaze, clasp and buttons and features hand stitching with gathers at the top. There are slits in the sides to allow access to pockets. This is a rare find due to its pristine condition: worker’s clothing was rarely prized enough to be retained, much less in this near-new condition. It's of a large size, measuring 33.5" from the clasp to the hem at front.
