Iridescent, pearly ivory glass beads form this amazing 1960s cropped vest—a see-thru beaded top that will look fabulous layered over your favorite dress or blouse! The top has a boxy shape and a shorter length, stopping just above the natural waist on our mannequin. The faceted glass beads have a shiny finish applied to them, which is slightly less shiny/worn off in places, but does not really detract from the overall fabulousness of the vest. The vest fastens down the front with small metal hooks and eyes, and has two decorative satin ties. The ties are a bit discolored, but could easily be removed or replaced, if preferred. We have carefully hand-washed this item (with household dish soap) but did not attempt any stain removal techniques on the ties, not knowing how the bead finish might react. The vest is relatively heavy, due to the weight of the beads, but they appear to be sturdily strung together with no visible weakness in the connections. In very good condition, this fun 1960s beaded top is quite the statement piece--a unique find to add to your vintage wardrobe!
