1980s lightweight black wool cardigan that is fully lined in a fine acetate. It has a remarkable raised satin stitch applique grape design in two places - the top left hand side with a larger area of applique work and the right hip. The raised element comprises of a bunch of grapes and each fruit has been padded and over-stitched in a red ombre embroidery silk. The leaves appear to have been hand embroidered in two shades of green. The central button stand has 9 original plastic buttons. Set off against a high neck, round collar with ribbed cuffs and neat hem, this piece is charming and in excellent vintage condition. Everything is very fresh looking and there are no holes or repairs although sadly it has lost its label. This will fit a range of sizes up to a UK 10-12, US 6-8.
