Beautifully preserved for its age. There are a couple hand done repairs, most notably the one pictured on the front center. There are a few scattered spots that did not fully lift when I hand washed this piece, as seen on the inside of the cuffs, along the hem and on sweater front near the repair. Sweater is otherwise bright of color, structurally sound and presents beautifully! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or for additional photos. Truly a unique piece of knit history!
