FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - VINTAGE FULLY FASHIONED HAND DECORATED BEADED & PEARL LAMBSWOOL SWEATER MADE IN BRITISH HONG KONG
I love these beaded & jeweled vintage evening sweaters from the ‘50s/‘60s especially the ones made in hong kong as they were the most beautiful of all
Although this is from my own personal collectioni have not worn it & it looks as though no one else has either - it looks like new old stock & there are still crisp folds in the sleeves of the sweater
These vintage sweaters are perfect for going out at night & dress up whatever outfit 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 today most definitely do not compare with the vintage ones which are fabulous
This gorgeous vintage sweater is by fully fashioned made in british hong kong - although there is no tag saying it was handed beaded in hong kong, i have owned & sold a lot of thse gorgeous sweaters & i know that is where they are from - the beading is exquisite as one would expect from hong kong & is hand decorated with round white beads, elongated white beads & rounded & elongated pearls
The sweater is in soft shade of blue which was hard to capture in the photos in the softest fabric of lambswool - the sweater is encrusted with hand set tiny white beads, white shot, round pearls & oval pearls - curved rows of pearls & beads swirl down from the beaded flowers & leaves on the bodice which extend to nearly the waist - there is more beading on the edges of the sweater as well as the bottom, ends of the sleeves & the back neck
The sweater is full fashioned which is the best quality that you can get in a sweater - the lambswool is very soft & luxurious - the sweater is heavy from all of beading - the sweater is lined except for the sleeves in a silky pale blue lining - round pearl buttons down the front of the evening sweater for closure - an extremely ornate & gorgeous vintage sweater & it is amazing to think that this sweater was decorated by hand many years ago
You will never see sweaters like this as manufacturers will not spend the money or the time to make them & this vintage sweater is exceptionally gorgeous
Just a very elegant vintage evening sweater lavished with pearls & beads which will look gorgeous any time of the year whether for an evening out, vacation or a cruise when you want to look spectacular

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.
