I hope someone may be able to help identify this legging. I was told it could be European but not English. It is about 16.5 inches high, made with red wool, it has a thicker (canvas?) cloth lining, as seen in the picture it has a gold/yellow edging and braid with a white pattern to the front, all of which are now slightly grubby from age, there are 16 small brass buttons to the rear that have a gentle patina, they have signs of a once silver finish.
This item is far from my usual area of interest so any help would be very much appreciated.
