This is a wonderful Mexican tourist / souvenir jacket made in red wool with wool embroidery featuring motifs commonly associated with Mexico.  These were popular with visitors to Mexico during the 1940s and 50s - I’m unsure if this one dates to the 50s or just a little later.  This jacket is crewel stitch embroidered with a man walking behind a burro, a house, rugs, horse shoes, sombreros etc.  The jacket has a pocket applied to either side and is unlined.  It has no closures.
