Spencer Jacket Silent Auction
Welcome to our Spencer Jacket Silent Auction!
What is a Spencer Jacket?
The Spencer Jacket Silent Auction is a collection of 15 jackets of different sizes, fabrics, and limited design. There will be a starting price and then participants will up the price by $5.00 by writing their bid on the auction sheet. The Start will be Friday and will continue until 4:00 pm on Saturday.
The History of the Spencer Jacket dates back to 1758 and the 2nd Earl of Spencer is reportedly to have had a tail coat adapted after its tails were burned by coals from a fire. He backed up to a fire to warm himself and the tails caught on fire. Does the name Spencer ring a bell? Princess Diana is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Spencer.
These Spencer Jackets are all hand made. They are made from very special fabrics depicting genuine Regency styles. We hope you will fall in love with one. It is for a good cause.
