This gorgeous vintage sweater dates from the 1950's/'60's. It was made and sold in Hong Kong. It is a creamy white and lined in the front and back. The white beading was all done by hand. The label says it is 85% lambswool, 10% nylon and 5% angora. I laid the sweater on a flat surface to measure it and closed the hook and eyes. If you are thinking of purchasing it to wear please measure a sweater that fits you and compare the measurements. Length from neck to hem along the back - 22 inches; Across the bust line at the underarm seam - 19 inches (this is just the front of the sweater so the true measurement around would be 38 inches around; Sleeve from shoulder to hem - 19 1/2 inches; Sleeve from underarm to hem - 13 3/4 inches; Width of sleeve around the hem - 9 1/2 inches. You can see from the photos that the sweater is beaded all around. Look closely at the beading. There are hundreds of beads in exquisite clusters of flowers. There are eight buttons along the front so you can close it if you wish. Sweater is in excellent condition. There is one small area on the left front where the beads have slightly darkened. I have priced it accordingly. I do not see any holes or missing beads. I would recommend dry cleaning in the future if you need to clean the sweater. The mannequin I used for the photos is smaller than the sweater and you can see that it doesn't fit properly around the bust line. If you have any questions or would like more measurements please contact me.
