* VINTAGE MAURICE BRUDER CASHMERE AND MINK EVENING SWEATER SPARKLING RHINESTONE CLASP
A gorgeous vintage black cashmere sweater with a mink collar and a gorgeous sparkling rhinestone clasp by Maurice Bruder. I purchased this vintage evening sweater in a vintage store in Tucson, AZ many decades ago.
The sweater is "Two-Ply Imported Cashmere" as stated on the label in which is under the sheer lining inside the sweater. The original tag from the vintage store is still on the sweater as I did nt remove it. The sweater is soft and luxurious feeling. It has a rhinestone clasp composed of various shapes of rhinestones on the metal clasp which closes with a metal hook that slips through a slot. The rhinestones are brilliantly cut so they sparkle constantly. There is no comparison to vintage rhinestones and rhinestones which are manufactured today as they do not come anywhere near the sparkle of the vintage rhinestones. The clasp is large at 2-1/4” across and 1” high. There is also a hook and eye for closure in the same area.
The lining is absolutely exquisite with sheer black crepe over a layer of white lace for a stunning look. What manufacturer would go to all that trouble and expense to do that with a sweater nowadays? Evening sweaters, if you can find one now, are not made this beautiful with the quality of these old vintage sweaters and that is why they are so expensive as well as being extremely hard to find.
The mink collar is attached with tiny old-fashioned snaps so it is easy to remove when you want to send the sweater to the cleaners. The collar is lined underneath with black crepe-like fabric. So much detail went into these this vintage sweater that it’s amazing.
The beautiful mink fox collar could also be used on another suit or dress if you wanted since it is detachable. The sweater has long sleeves with cuffs which have a soft ribbing at the ends.
The sweater is in beautiful condition and looks as though it was rarely worn. A very elegant and exquisite vintage sweater adorned with a beautiful mink collar and rhinestone clasp for over your cocktail dress or evening gowns. Perfect for Christmas parties, New Year‘s Eve, Valentine‘s Day or a cruise.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
