Hello,
I bought this uniform, which I thought was beautiful.

I help you identify it,
Is it civil or military?

Any help is welcome.

thank you very much.

Hard to date .perhaps a closer photo of the buttons would be useful .because of the crown .

 Very nice and would fit well with this uniform, would also need the Swan feather plume for the hat.

After i have seen the rose braided on the collar and the crown on the buttons I agree . Its not military . and Victorian .the quality of the braid is superb .

You may already have guessed or known this, Fahnen, but the rose for English counties was replace by shamrocks for Ireland, thistles for Scotland and the Prince of Wales three plumes for Wales.   So yours is very definitely one of the English counties.
