This is a blue button-down shirt used by Viola Frey as a smock when working with clay. The arms are rolled up to the elbow and dried clay is stuck to the surface of the cloth in multiple places. There are six blue plastic buttons molded with the text "UNITED STATES 1776" down the front of the shirt and one on a tab of cloth at top center on the back. The shirt has a mandarin collar and two large pockets on the front.
