Absolutely stunning late 1930s to early 1940s blouse. This unlabeled top features the round brass hook & eye closures that American designer Claire McCardell famously used. McCardell favored a more natural shoulder shape, so this piece is probably not by her, but perhaps something that inspired her. Label or not, this is a well made, exquisite, and unusual blouse!
