Am I seeing things???

There are these two pieces:

Both are at the MET. The one on the left is accession number C.I.49.43.3; dated to the 1850s; “Gift of Colonel Thatcher T.P. Luquer, 1949.” The one on the right is accession number 2009.300.1606; dated to 1835; “Gift of the Brooklyn Museum, 2009; Funds given by Mrs. Richard Palmer, 1978.”

Look at that plait.

*Note: I do not think the one on the left is an 1850s piece.
