Stunningly Beautiful late 50s Black silk Chantilly lace and satin ladies cocktail suit.
The top skims just above the hips and is finished on all edges in black satin. A deep high neck band collar is to the front, at the back it’s beautifully cut in a deep V with dagger edges to the return collar.
It’s classically cut and lined in rayon silk.
The skirt is shaped to fit, so to speak, again it’s fully lined in black rayon, the zip is metal and free running.
The silk Chantilly lace is perfect and without damage.

The suit has been worn, but with care, and appears to be a return, as it is part of a consignment of retired boutique stock.
There is a swing tag dated June 1959. There are no tags inside, except one saying the suit must be dry cleaned, and this was done recently prior to being offered for sale.

The measurements given have been taken seam to seam when the garment was laid flat and relaxed. 
Please compare the sizes given for an exact fit.
