Original Vintage Late 1950s / Early 1960s Black Beaded Wool Cardigan Sweater
This fabulous cardigan was made from soft black wool in the late 1950s / early 1960s. It was designed to be collarless and fastens at the front with nine buttons. The entire front of the cardigan, upper back and sleeve cuffs have been adorned with intricate black beading in the shape of flowers and foliage. Inside, the body of the cardigan is lined in rayon (to prevent any potential itch or allergy from the wool) and bears the maker’s label for Royal India Taylor’s of Hong Kong. This piece is just perfect to snuggle up in as the colder days draw in and can be effortlessly popped over your vintage dresses to add warmth and a bit of seasonal sparkle!
Length: 18 1/2”
The cardigan is in very good condition with only a few tiny pinholes and snags as pictured. Due to the black bodice lining they are barely visible. The only one that can be noticed is at the wearer’s right shoulder as the sleeves are unlined.
