Breathtaking Original 1930s 30s Vintage Gold Sequin Puff Sleeve Bolero Jacket
This breathtaking garment was made in the 1930s from black netting that has been adorned with hundreds if not thousands of gold sequins. It was cut in the shape of an open fronted bolero that can be worn over another garment. The short puff sleeves have small shoulder pads inside to enhance the strong pealed shape. The sequins are attached in a beautiful pattern that can best be seen on the back of the jacket, where they are arranged in the style of wings with a central bow section. The sequins are more densely gathered on the edges of the garment and gave a wonderfully lustrous shine. This would look spectacular over a simple black dress and is sure to be a head turner.
Bust: 32”-34” but some flexibility as worn open
Shoulders: 13 1/3” seam to seam
The bolero is in good condition, however there are a few barely noticeable repairs to the netting, which disappear as soon as it is worn over a black garment allowing the sequins to shine. There is also some minor sequin loss and two small barely noticeable breaks in the netting.
