Vintage White Angora and Lambs Wool Embroidered Cardigan Sweater, Steven Chu, Hong Kong, ca 1950s

$150.00 USD



  • Angora
  • Lambs Wool
This cardigan is one of the prettiest I have seen; it is in excellent vintage condition - I can find no flaws. The interior label reads: Steven Chu Beaded Sweater Factory, Exporter and Wholesale, 6-Carnarvon Rd, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2nd Floor, Flat A-3. Although there is no fabric content on the tag, I am pretty sure it is angora and lambs wool.

Please be sure to note the scattered, embroidered bunches of blue, pink, lavender and yellow flowers - roses? - in groups of 2, 3, 4 and 5 - across the front and back of the sweater; note, too, the row of single flowers - are they all rose buds? - around the entire collar and down the front middle of the sweater; these highlight the row of sweet faux pearl buttons. There is even a flower on each of the sleeves, near the cuffs. The interior of the sweater is lined with a white silky material.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 18"
armpit to armpit: 21"
length: 22"
sleeve length: 21.5"

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.
