50s / 60s CATALINA jacquard black cardigan jacket with floral pattern in red, yellow, pale blue, moss green and white. Scalloped black edging to the crew neck and down the placket. Very decorative traditional leaf embossed shank buttons. Subtly reminds me of Bavarian knits.
The cardigan is not labeled with a size, but fits approx a general size XS-S. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit.
Shoulder to shoulder: 14"
Underarm to cuff: 14"
Very wearable, but a bit as is, does have signs of wear, mainly to the extremities:
-There is a bit of wear to both cuffs with areas of darning, one on each cuff. The way this is knitted in a jacquard style is quite concealing, but you can see the wear to the outer knit where the outer knit stitches have worn through to show the underlaying jacquard.
-Some wear along the edge of the placket, mainly to the outer knit, with the underlaying jacquard showing through in places.
-Slight felting to the underarms.
-Some small pulls in the stitches, which I've tried to go over and tidy up where I can.
