Livery coat of the French Guards c.1750s
Drummer's coat with the Grand Livery of the King. Almost identical versions were used by both the French Guards (the one in the pics, featuring cross pockets), and the Swiss Guards (see coloured print, with vertical pockets). Carefully reconstructed from extant original liveries of the Maison Civile du Roy, this coat is made of fine blue cloth, faced red on the cuffs, and fully lined with red "serge d'Aumale". It is almost entirely covered with the three different types of braids that made up the King's Livery, and which have been exactly replicated from the original samples preserved in the National Archives of Paris, which we were allowed to examine.
Available by standard sizes or on measure. The coat can also be made for other royal regiments, who wore the Small Livery, for a lesser price.
