This beautiful sweater is in very good vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than 2 small areas in the back where there is a green spot - this may come out with a good soaking; I was unable to capture these spots with camera. The interior tag reads: Oriental Fashions, Made in British Hong Kong; another reads: 40. This sweater is quite heavy.

Please be sure to note the intricate white beaded floral detail all over the sweater; note, too, the faux pearls that comprise the centers of each flower and the scattered iridescent sequins, again, all over the sweater. Note, as well, the gorgeous cream lace that covers the soft angora and lambs wool body of the sweater. There is a flattering slit at each hip, each slit with a hook and eye if one wishes to close the slit. There is a row of hook and eyes down the center front of the sweater for closure. The entire sweater is edged in cream silk satin. The sweater is lined with cream silk.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 19"
armpit to armpit: 24"
length: 22"
sleeve length: 21"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection, topping off your contemporary or vintage ensemble; it is a fine example of wearable 1950s textile art.
