Embroidered "Matyo" Bolero

 We have just had this Hungarian bolero waistcoat restored, there were a couple of holes in the embroidery which  have been meticulously repaired and embroidered and lots of old storage marks.  The shapes of the flowers are Matyo but the colours are colder ( but very nice?) than traditional Matyo designs.  The embroidery is a mixture of hand and machine.
