Pretty top, between a jacket and a blouse. Too heavy to be a blouse really. It is black lace that is lined, and labeled Cynthia Althusen. Size 8. In good. slightly worn condition. The sleeves at the wrist are scalloped.
Pre-owned by Charlotte Bookout, wife of James Bookout, who was the FBI agent that interviewed Lee Harvey Oswald after President Kennedy was assassinated. At the Bookout estate his items were too expensive so I raided the closets of his wife, Charlotte instead. Last I looked she was still alive. She had style and organized her 4 full closets by size! They traveled worldwide. Some of her clothes were from some of her distant visits in her travels.
There is a conspiracy theory that James Bookout was really the shooter that killed Oswald, and not Ruby. But that's another story
Size 8 Measurements:
Bust 34" Shoulders 16" Sleeves 22" Length 23 "
I'd like to note that my mannequin is a size 6 and I think it fits well. The lace fabric is a synthetic and has some stretch and give to it. In clean and good condition with no pulls, tears, stains or odors. The buttons are covered in satin fabric. It is lined with no shoulder pads.
