Very good vintage condition. Cleaned and presents crisply. 75+ years old.

To note: she has a few darns on the inside that left barely visible imperfections in the knit on the exterior -- see photo closeups. The lowermost button is older, but not a match (in all the years I've owned this cardi, I never noticed this!).
