Very good vintage condition with great presentation. Gently cleaned. 70+ years old.

Noted: a few faint marks scattered in the print are found if you go over it top to bottom searching for imperfections. Subtle smudging at one underarm area and a few tight scratches or picks to fabric as is commonly seen. See photo close-ups. Vivid, busy print and imperfections do not stand out to the eye during normal wear.
