excellent

Condition

Two red jewels have been removed, from each side of lapels of dress - they are somewhere in stock, but have been separated from the dress. Otherwise the condition is excellent. Two silver rhinestone brooches are on either side of the neckline of the hooded coat; for storage they are wrapped in tissue to protect the fabric, and perhaps should be separated in the future.
