Amazing 1940s Sequined Zip Front Top

An amazing and hard to find early 1940s silk moss crepe topper that has the most amazing sequin and beaded design over it's entirety! Cut to sit just at the waist this one zips to close making it a great and versatile piece that can be worn as a top or jacket. The entire jacket is hand sequined and each sequined design is edged in a tiny perfect row of glass tube beads. It is stunning! Excellent condition!

The top is unlined and zips to close with a front brass zipper. There are a couple of sequins missing on the very back of the collar but that is it! Amazing!
