George IV’s coronation robes, worn to and from Westminster Abbey, included a cloth-of-silverand- gold doublet and hose, a ruffed collar, a long velvet and ermine mantel and this glittering surcoat, exquisitely embroidered. A small portion of the surcoat is depicted in Lawrence’s state portrait of the king (in an earlier section).
