Excellent structural condition with all original buttons, and no missing beads or sequins that I can see, paint is well preserved. There are some areas of small foxing dots, and a mark to shoulder where the body meets sleeve seam. The back has pale gradual colour transfer? in a yellowy hue but I don't feel this detracts. A touch of colour change to the underarm areas as pictured which isn't noticeable on. A *trusted* cleaners I'm sure would be able to lessen at least the foxing marks!
