Beautiful blouse from the early 1950s. Made of black rayon crepe with metal thread embroidery around the collar and sleeves. 

These blouses were made in Israel by Yemeni artisans who applied their traditional embroidering techniques to modern (at the time) styles. You can watch a video about this from 1955 here (it’s a bit cringe but the footage is cool)
