This is a very wearable piece of clothing from the late '50's-early '60's era - a cropped top or jacket in a medium-weight black jersey. It's heavily beaded with black rocaille and round beads and black sequins, with flower and leaf forms. The beading appears to be totally intact - I have found no loose or missing beads or sequins. The piece has no label to indicate a maker or the size. It looks to have been custom made by a dressmaker - it's expertly sewn, with the lining sewn in by hand. The top is completely lined, and the outer edges have been finished on the inside of the garment with black satin binding - a labor-intensive detail which adds to the quality of the piece. Here are the measurements: shoulders - 16", bust - 35", length (front) - 10-1/2", length (back) - 12", sleeve length - 8". There is a full-length metal zipper in the back that separates completely and works perfectly. The piece is in excellent condition and shows no evidence of having been worn.
