1920s Fine Soft Black Lace Cardigan

An amazing 1920s (or perhaps earlier) machine lace top or cardigan is a rare and wonderful example of early day wear. Day pieces are less often found as they would have been worn over and over. This is a lovely machine lace open fronted jacket that has a pretty ribbon edging down the front. The hem is the pretty scalloped edging of the lace! I love the cuffs on the jacket - you can lie them flat and they form perfect little circles so add a little drama. It is very simple but very pretty and feminine. Excellent condition.

Shoulders: 14"
Bust: to 18î from side seam to side seam
Waist: open
Total length: 21î from shoulder to back hem, the front hangs 2" more
Sleeves: 22î

Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
