Vintage cardigan sweater from Helen Bond Carruthers dates to the 1950's and is made of a repurposed piano shawl and features ribbon flowers sewn on throughout. Center front button closure. As in all of Ms. Carruthers' sweaters the cuffs and waistband has been tacked up. Lined with silk chiffon except in the arms.
Condition: Wool is in excellent condition. It appears that the embroidery in the appliqued piano shawl has faded, as well as has lost stitches throughout. Additionally, the ribbon flowers show wear from age and use. Small tear in lining at center back neck.
