Description Small boy's patchwork jacket with collared short sleeve cotton shirt underneath. The jacket is made from cotton and silk with one central imitation shell button with a star pattern on it. The jacket has two patchwork rows. The top row has the "diamondback rattlesnake" pattern in green, black, orange, blue and pink cotton. The bottom patchwork row has a "X" or diagonal cross design in red and turquoise on a royal blue background. The read of the jacket is moved with off-white silk and cotton (red, blue, green, pink, purple) rows. A dark brown rick-rack is added to the sleeves and collar.

The off-white collared shirt under the jacket has a tag in the collar that reads "Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue". There are three buttons down the front of the shirt and seven additional buttons around the waistline. These waistline buttons may have been to attach pants or additional clothing.
