FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - VINTAGE '50s / '60s CASHMERE & ANGORA EVENING SWEATER ENCRUSTED WITH BEADS & PEARLS MADE IN HONG KONG - LARGER SIZE
I love these heavily beaded vintage evening sweaters from the ‘50s / ‘60s - this especially beautiful one is from my own personal collection in a soft shade of pink that goes beautifully with a vintage pink dress that is shown under the “Evening Gowns” section
I wore the sweater over my shoulders only twice while I was at dinner & had it on probably less than 15 minutes as I took it off as soon as i sat down
They are perfect for going out at night & dress up whatever you are wearing - not only that but no one will have one like yours as it is totally unique & one-of-a-kind - the evening sweaters they make now most definitely do not compare with the vintage ones which are fabulous
This lovely sweater is in beautiful shade of pink in the softest fabric which is cashmere & angora for extra softness & luxury - it is encrusted with hundreds of tiny white beads, round pearls on the front of the sweater, ends of the sleeves & the back neck - the sweater is heavy because of all of the beading & detail
You will never see sweaters like this as manufactures will not spend the money or the time to make them - these gorgeous sweaters are from Hong Kong where they also did all of that fabulous beaded work on cocktail dresses in the late ’60s
Just a fabulous design in the beading in swirls & huge stars accented with a round pearl in the center - the back is just as beautiful as the front & lavished with more white beading & pearls - the sweater is full fashioned which is the best kind of sweater that you can buy - it is completely lined in a silky pink fabric & the lining was put in by hand
There is grosgrain ribbon under the buttons & button hole area inside the sweater for strength & ease in buttoning - ¾ quarter sleeves with more beading - rounded pink pearlized buttons down the front
A beautiful vintage pearl & beaded evening sweater which will look gorgeous in summer with the air conditioning in a club or restaurant or winter as well!

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.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
