♛Condition Very good vintage condition. Jet black, clean, presenting wonderfully for its 80+ years.

Noted: the side snap placket has one single hook, and its eye is broken. The hook is not really needed to keep it closed as there are a lot of snaps, but I'm leaving it in place in case you want to replace the eye or just remove it. A couple tears on the lining under the lace insert of one cuff...this is inside dress/not visible from exterior, but this backing could be easily/cheaply replaced as it's just small amount of fabric. Accounted for in pricing.
