Bombay Engineers, a Victorian Lieutenant Colonel’s scarlet dress tunic.


An attractive example of a senior officer’s tunic of the Bombay Army, with blue piping, blue velvet facings to the cuffs, correct gilt lace for the rank and with all its buttons retaining full gilt. The buttons, by the leading London maker Jennens & Co, are nine to the front and six to the divided tails. There is considerable wear to the padded upper lining and some moth damage to the lining of the lower parts. The scarlet cloth remains in good condition with some minor moth damage, wear to the cuff velvet and damage to one small loop of the lace on the left cuff.
