This gorgeous top is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws. The interior label reads: Hand Trimmed Exclusively for Imperial, Made in British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, 100% Wool; another tag denotes the size: M. Please note the close-up of the beading in photo #7 - this has been lightened so as to capture the detail with my camera.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 15"
armpit to armpit: 18"
waist/hips (flat): 15"
back length: 20" + 1" for beaded dangle
back metal zipper: 14"

What a wonderful example of 1960s style at its best! This top would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a fantastic addition to your vintage collection.
