♛Condition

Very good vintage shape with a few minor imperfections and some normal signs of previous use for the era. Cleaned. 60+ years old.

Very faint trace of toning at underarm rims, hidden during wear (see photo). A tiny hole near side seam under an arm was mended/reinforced from inside by a former owner...I didn't see it until going over this closely in my lap right now.

There's a little shallow scuff on the fabric of one of the skirt pleats.If you pull the skirt flat, there are at least a couple subtly faded spots on the turquoise border that are hidden/tucked into pleats during normal wear. Even with the skirt puffed out wearing two crinolines as shown, the blems remained hidden.

Please look over photos as they give you an idea of the crisp impact she makes on the eye!
