This darling 1950s black cashmere pullover sweater is trimmed in front with whimsical, bright red wool polka dots, each encircled by glass beading. The high, round neckline features a border of polka dots, plus shiny, black tube beads. This fine-quality, “fully-fashioned” vintage cashmere sweater has ribbed edges at the three-quarter-length sleeves and the hem. It fastens from the back of the neck to the hem with metal zipper, and it is unlined. The previous owner has mended the sweater in 2 places: at the middle back/left side, and a smaller mend next to the zipper, at the hem (see out close-up photos). The mends are relatively well done, and appear stable, so we have left them as they are—although a professional re-weaver could certainly make a better job of them. In very good condition, this fun 1950s cashmere sweater has no other issue to note.
