1950s Lanvin Attributed Embellished Top

This came out of an estate and the woman had several labeled Lanvin pieces and a grouping of what was sold as unlabeled Lanvin as well (see the other listing for a similar top). It certainly has the look of it but other then the fact that I trust the source implicitly and that both tops I am listing today are very well made and have that look of Lanvin I must of course price it as amazing 1950s top in its own right. Made of a fine wool jersey, it is shaped and cut to follow the body. The detail work and elaborate collar really indicate its higher end construction. A deep salmon silk is extensively embroidered and then braids and bead work worked on top of that! I love the rich feel it gives the piece! Excellent condition.
