Vintage Beaded Sweater Rockabilly Black Lambs Wool Cardigan Sz 38 M
A cluster of shiny articulated beads trim this charming vintage black wool ladies cardigan sweater by Jo Ro Imports in Miami Beach, circa late 50s early 60s.
The Rockabilly style sweater consists of a jet black lambswool and angora knit with a trim of black round multisized beads all along the inner edge, and dotted throughout front and back as shown.
The sweater also has 7/8 length sleeves with full lining within (except for the sleeves) and no closures.
*Note – there are a few beads which have lost their outer coating as shown in close up, but don't detract.
Otherwise, the sweater is in very good condition with beadwork intact.
