Gorgeous 1950s Unlabeled Black Silk Jacket w Silk Ball Fringe Detailing

This is a gorgeous little jacket that is most likely from the late fifties and it still feels as chic now as it would have then! The jacket is made out of a light weight fine silk that has a touch of texture running through it. It has a pretty cut with a more blousy feel through the top and then then waist nips in a bit with a seam. There is a narrow peplum under the waist seam that flares out for a pretty shape. The sleeves are slightly cropped and cut more straight and wide. I love the flat silk covered buttons and the decorative little flaps that sit on either side of the front. The collar is rounded and neat. Detailing the edge of the collar all the way around are little hand covered silk balls that are set so they dangle off the edge and move when you move. The inside is lined in a black silk and it is just a darling little vintage piece. Very well made. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silk and closes with the buttons at the front. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
