♛Condition

Good vintage condition. No big flaws, just diffuse signs of age. Cleaned, sturdy. 70+ years old.

To note: age-related color change throughout the wine red color and a general air of timeworn patina to the satin. Examine photos as they tell it best. Wear at night and she'll present flawlessly. :)

Two buttons are pebbled jet glass, one is faceted Bakelite. Buttons are old and cool, so selling as it is. The Bakelite button is actually covered and hidden if you opt to use a belt, which is probs how the original got lost!

Dig the vibe of a shabby Victorian manse overseen by a stylish eccentric who gives late night dinner parties and also might be a vampire?
