Description

This. Is. Perfect.

When I say *Perfect*, I mean PERFECT. There is nary a loose or missing bead, no moth holes, no lining issues, nothing amiss here. This beauty must've been kept in someone's drawer, wrapped in tissue paper for the last 60 years, because I have never seen such a great example of a mid-century beaded sweater. And I've come across quite a few in my years of collecting- almost always with at least some heartbreaking moth damage or missing beading.

In addition to being in amazing shape, the beading on this is exquisite- there is light beading covering the entire body, then along the borders- there are light-catching bugle beads, and then the best- on both front sides and on the back panel are the more heavily beaded floral elements. There are also small floral sprays on each sleeve. BTW- in case it matters to you- keep in mind that the front panels do not have matching floral elements- one side is slightly more showy than the other- this is by design.

Made by Eleanor, this sweater is made of 20% Angora, 10% Nylon, and 70% Lambs Wool, is fully lined, with the buttons and button holes being backed in grosgrain ribbon to keep them from pulling/stretching. The sleeves are 3/4 length, and the front closes to the neck with buttons.

The tag gives the size as "34", but please see below and compare to a similar garment of yours that fits well. Dimensions below. These were taken when laid flat, so please double all except length. FYI- these measurements are all with the sweater buttoned up completely.

Neck: 7"
Chest: 16"
Waist: 12"
Length: 18"
Sleeve Length: 17" (from top shoulder seam down)

Returns and exchange details

I hate it when people misrepresent the quality of an item, so I promise to always accurately describe what you are getting, and price it accordingly. I also list accurate measurements of the items. There should be no issue of "hey, this isn't what I thought it was!" If you have any questions at all regarding an item-please convo me before purchase.

Also- keep in mind, as with anything purchased online, there may be slight color variations due to viewing on different devices. If you are uncertain of a color or want a more detailed image of something- ask me and I will be happy to provide more detail. I want you to be totally in love with your purchase!

For this reason I do NOT offer refunds.

Shipping policies

I ship all U.S. packages USPS Priority Mail. Depending on the item, I ship international orders either via Priority or First Class to keep shipping down. You need to be aware that your own country's customs service may impose a range of import fees, taxes, tariffs, duties at the time of delivery. These are not in my control and I have no way of knowing when or if they will be imposed or how much they might be. For information you should contact your local customs agency.
