Canton of Zurich, Wehntal.

The picture shows a couple from “the good old days”.
It wears dresses and even planted even processed canvas. The long skirt of the farmer covers the Scarlet vest. The “Threesome Pants” with the stockings, which are manufactured from the same fabric sewn to a piece together. The shirt with the “parricide” is held together by a black cravat. Hood and tricorn also belong to the farmer, as the pipe.
Handsome looks like the farmer’s wife. Her petticoat of red Molto, with velvet and blue silk ribbon trimmed, must be a fair bit longer than that “scratched” dark skirt. Silver buckles to keep the apron. Around and around the armhole on each side of the red, with black velvet ornate chest bib run blue moiré ribbons. The collar, “upper chamber”, the women are white, while that of young women in color or black. The “manholes hood” denotes those who are married. Singles were hanging braids with braided straps, plus the “Hütli”, were a plain surrounded by velvet laid his head, which ends with the falling spikes.

Kanton Zürich, Wehntaler Tracht

Das Bild stellt ein Ehepaar aus “der guten alten Zeit” dar. Es trägt Kleider aus selbstgepflanzter und selbst verarbeiteter Leinwand. Der lange Rock des Bauern deckt die Scharlachrote Weste. Die “Flotterhosen” sind mit den Strümpfen, welche aus dem gleichen Stoff verfertigt sind, zu einem Stück zusammen genäht. Das Hemd mit dem “Vatermörder” wird durch eine schwarze Halsbinde zusammen gehalten. Zipfelmütze und Dreispitz gehören ebenso zum Bauern, wie die Tabakspfeife.

Stattlich sieht die Bäuerin aus. Ihr Unterrock von rotem Molto, mit Samteinfassung und bleuen Seidenband garniert, muss ein gutes Stück länger sein, als die “gekratzte” dunkle Jupe. Silberschnallen halten die Schürze. Um das Armloch herum und zu beiden Seiten des roten, mit schwarzem Samt verzierten Brustlatzes laufe blaue Moiré Bänder. Der Kragen, Söller”, der Frauen ist weiß, derjenige der Jungfrauen farbig oder schwarz. Die “Schächhaube” kennzeichnet die Verheirateten. Ledige trugen hängende Zöpfe mit eingeflochtenen Bändern, dazu das “Hütli”, ein glatt um den Kopf gelegtes Samtband, dessen herabfallende Enden mit Spitzen umgeben waren.
