Very good vintage shape with some hidden imperfections. It presents on display like excellent. Has not been cleaned by us due to the metallics. I do not see exterior visible stains or issues. Nearly 70 years old.
To note: the metallics left some old stains and discoloration on the white cotton lower area of the top that (luckily!) tucks in and is completely hidden when worn. There are corresponding spots on the inside lining of skirt's waist, again, not visible when worn/displayed. See last image of blouse alone for a better look.
The skirt zipper can be a bit stubborn, though is working at time of listing.
Remains a showstopper visually, and is priced mainly with its tiny size in mind.
Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Please be familiar with vintage clothing and read over our shop policies before purchasing. We are happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing.
