Women's 50s Cherries Cardigan Sweater Vintage Dark Blue Small to Medium VFG
This cropped vintage cardigan adorned with 3-D cherries is adorable! The sweater is fully fashioned, a construction technique frequently seen on vintage sweaters, and rarely seen on modern ones with the exception of high end. The jewel neckline and front plackets are edged in narrow bands of red and navy blue satin. Dangling three dimensional trapunto cherries wrap around the neckline and down the front the the sweater on both sides of the placket. A pair of cherries also accents each cuff.
SIZE: Labeled 38. Measurements taken without stretching.
FABRIC/COLORS: The sweater is knit from dark blue wool, and has a matching dark blue lightweight acetate partial lining. Cherries are done in red embroidery floss over small mounds of batting, with flat embroidered mossy green leaves.
TAGS: No makers tag. I have a nearly identical sweater in black that is labeled as made in Hong Kong, and I believe this cardigan was probably Hong Kong made as well.
CLOSURES: The sweater closes with eight small hooks & eyes down the front.
CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears or other issues seen.
