Beaded cashmere sweater, c.1950

Embellished cashmere sweaters are a must-have fashion accessory. They are versatile and ever stylish. Here is a work of art that can be worn with a long evening skirt for an elegant night out. Or wear it with jeans!

If you love unique beading patterns as much as I do, then this is your sweater. On the front, the design features Oriental characters. On the back is a tree that reminds me of the Stanley Hagler Christmas brooches.

The sweater is fashioned from heavy two-ply, cream colored cashmere, which is luxuriously soft. The body is lined with matching silk georgette; the sleeves are unlined. The sweater closes in front with hidden hooks. There is no label.

The condition is excellent. It is clean and ready to wear, a real twofer: wearable and collectible!

It measures: 40" bust, 26" waist unstretched, 22" sleeve length, and 19" from shoulder to hem.
