Very good vintage shape with minor cosmetic imperfections. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

To note: some subtle flaws for which I knocked $100 or so off the price. Perfect for those of us tolerant of these kinds of things who crave top shelf style.

Faint tide mark on the peplum that didn't fully lift with cleaning. Skirt has a small area of faint marks by front/side hem. A similar faint splash mark on the back of skirt.

Subtle age fade at rear collar and shoulder line, as found on the majority of red items from this era -- not bad or detracting, just try to point out everything I see. Look over photos and see what you think!

Extra notes: I removed the ornaments for cleaning and then securely reattached them; I recommend doing this to protect them from harm. Middle cloth button is different from the other two but is identical fabric so I think it was a stylistic accent.
