Gold beaded 1950s-60s cardigan tan lambswool M

1950s Clothing



This pale tan lambswool beaded cardigan sweater from the 1950s or early 1960s has gold glass beading forming lovely leaf designs. More beading trims the round neckline, front opening, the three-quarter-length sleeves, and the waist-length hem. The soft and fluffy knit is a blend of lambswool, angora, and nylon fibers. The cardigan fastens in front with shiny gold buttons, which are just a bit loose in their buttonholes (you may want to tighten the holes if you want to the sweater to stay buttoned closed securely when worn). It is lined with white rayon chiffon fabric, except the sleeves, which are unlined. In very good condition, the cardigan has one very faint mark on the back of the right sleeve—see close-up photos. With no other issues to note, this beautifully beaded 1950s-60s cardigan sweater will add some vintage glamor to your favorite dress or top!
