Great vintage condition; light wear from age and use. Some light discoloration and repairs to lace (see photos). Some light wear to black crepe acetate. No other visible flaws to note; no holes, rips, tars, stains, markings, areas of discoloration (other than noted), open seams or excessively worn areas.
