1950's Estelle Parker Cashmere Sweater with Silk Ribbon Flowers


Estelle Parker had shops in Palm Beach, New York and Newport in the 1950's where she sold her beautiful embellished cashmere sweaters. This one is a cream cashmere sweater which has been altered by turning the cuffs and hem under for a more snug fit, and replacing the original buttons with pink satin ones. Several shades of pink satin ribbon are used to make the floral design which is appliqued to the front and back of the sweater as well as on the cuffs. It is in excellent condition except for a few faint little spots on the left side of the back near the side seam. It has been priced with this minor issue in mind. Measurements; Shoulders 17" Bust 38" Waist 26" Sleeve 20" Length 19"
