This is a very nice quality 100% wool sweater made in Austria for Lansea of Great Britain. The sweater is made in a cardigan style and closes with seven wool covered buttons down the front. The sleeves are cut in a raglan style. The sweater still has its original hang tag string attached at the back of the label, so I don't think that this sweater was ever used. The collar and cuffs of the sweater are decorated with beads, sequins and embroidered with floral motifs and with metallic gold thread.
Age: late 1950s / early 1960s
Label: Lansea Reg'd Made in Austria. Lansea was a British knitwear company.
Material: 100% Wool
Sizing: Size 36 is indicated, so this should fit a medium size with a 36" bust - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders/Sleeves: 51" across from the end of one cuff, over the shoulders and to the end of the other cuff
Bust: 44" around, taken under the arm, but meant to be loose due to slight batwing formed by the raglan sleeve - this really should fit a 36" bust
Waist: 32" around, unstretched
Overall length: 20", measured flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition - because the hang tag string is still affixed, I assume that this sweater was never worn. It certainly is in clean & crisp condition.
This is a beautiful quality sweater with pretty decorative trim.....lovely quality piece that is sure to be noticed....
