Product Description

Fantastically soft, exquisitely made, the jewelled evening sweater was an essential piece in the glamorous woman's wardrobe from the '40's to the '60's. Especially prized were those made in British Hong Kong for the quality of workmanship.  This one in a lush shade of baby pink  complements every complexion, is completely trimmed in a delicate , subtle shade of ice-pink satin, and the heavy, intricate beading features Chinese characters and symbols, most likely heavenly blessings of good fortune and great luck.   A very special item.
