Very good wearable vintage shape with subtle cosmetic imperfections. Cleaned and presents well. 75+ years old.

Priced as-is. Bodice has a subtle splotch on it, and there's one more just below the belt line. These lightened in cleaning, but did not completely erase. See photos...imperfections are barely visible unless pointed out.
