Classic late-50s/early-60s pale pink/peach beaded wool and angora cardigan lined in soft pink nylon with faux pearl buttons. This sweater has full length sleeves, ribbed wrist and waist, elaborate white and iridescent beading in a floral design on the front and was made by Millay in British Hong Kong.

The condition of the sweater is ok for its age, not great/not poor. It has the kind of wear that makes it wearable every day, in my opinion, because I don't have to worry too much about "doing" something to it. Nothing tragic, but not pristine. There are a couple of small moth holes (see pic #4), and there is discoloration to the knit from age, exposure, and wear. Most of the beading is intact, but there is one loose section, and it's missing a couple of segments (pic #5, lower right).

Shabby. Chic. Throw it on with some jeans and badass jewelry to rock at night and no-one will ever know you got a great deal on a blemished piece.

My preferred method of sending and receiving money with U.S. customers is AmazonPayments. It works like PayPal (via email) but doesn't charge fees. Yup, awesome, NO FEES!

Thanks!
