Vintage 1950s Black Cashmere Sweater with Mink Collar Bernhard Altmann Ladies M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely quality cashmere sweater made in black with a greyish brown mink collar. The sweater is made in a cardigan style and closes with a faux pearl studded clip at the bottom front as well as two hooks and loops just above the clip. The mink collar is affixed with a series of snaps, so can be removed should you need to have the sweater cleaned. The bottom front centre as well as the cuff of either sleeve is stitched to create at “pulled” look - the cuffs are each decorated with two faux pearls. The interior is lined with a grey lace covered by a semi transparent black fabric.
Label: Bernhard Altmann 100% Pure Imported Cashmere
Material: Cashmere & Mink
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 17 1/2” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 25” long from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 17”
Bust: 40” around
Waist: 28” around unstretched, stretches out to 33” around

Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear and the sweater is free of holes, tear, stains and odours. The only defect that I have noted are three seed pearls missing from the setting - very minor as you can’t notice this closely inspecting the clip. The mink collar is fresh and supple - it has been well cared for over the years.
This is a beautiful quality 50s era sweater with a mink collar....
