They don't appear to ever have been washed or ironed. There are no holes, rips, tears, repairs, or odors to anything. The collar is still stiff, the purse still has the original pink tissue inside. This is shown in the last picture.
The tissue has aged to a darker pink but it's nice that it is still there. The only issues are that the tag has been cut off, but you can still see a remnant of the tag under the collar in picture # 4, and the slip elastic has lost it's stretch. The slip taffeta is nice and crisp and shiny, never washed or ironed, and so pretty with the red rick rack trim.
