Dear Deborayh-

I think you are confusing the lovely metal work jacket (linen worked in
gold thread) with the knitted jackets, which are  in the reserve
collection. I don't believe the knitted jackets were ever displayed, but
the goldwork jacket was, and the .Blanch Payne costume book has a b&w photo
of it.  Oh-that silver lace edging it! Tarnished, so you knew it was real
silver metal thread.
