  • Condition: Vintage ~  The top has discolouration to the lining and under the armpits - some of the beading is missing in places (not too noticeable) - there are also a couple of small moth holes in places and a small stain to the front. The cardigan has some loose stitching where the lining meets the neckline which is also discoloured. There is also a small amount of beading missing and the top hook is missing. There are two spot marks just below the shoulder  to one side and and a couple more lower down to the front and a spot stain to the back of one arm (approx half an inch). Although there seems to be an awful lot of issues, they are all small faults and this set is really beautiful and the beading is exquisite.
