Condition Detail
Satin looks and feels sturdy, though a 1920s era silk is generally only considered wearable with caution; the lace panniers have several breaks that indicates fragility, most have been neatly repaired with black illusion with a few small holes remaining, not noticeable when worn; the buckle has five rhinestones missing, some are darkened, with minor bending to the metal frame, looks "antiqued" at first glance and we consider these flaws good patina, not necessarily a detraction

Washing Instructions
If necessary, dry clean by hand, by a professional experienced with antique clothing
