Condition 

In excellent vintage condition for its age, very slight colour variation in the white pique in bodice from the skirt. The bodice is a creamier white than the skirt  I have had two others with this design in various colours of the years and  they all had a variation between the colour of the bodice and the skirt - as have listings from other vendors. In my opinion it's not a major issue - just look at the photos they tell the story. No colour bleed or colour tinge in the skirt and the colours remain vibrant and free from fade.  Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

 

Comment

How rare and desirable is this print? Perhaps the holy grail for many vintage collectors. This one is in wonderful condition and the design and detail in the roses is to die for.
