This is a Jenny Kee round neck cardigan from the 1980s featuring a design of gum leaves along with their flowers and nuts, on a bold black and cream striped background. There are cream rib knit borders, at the front, whilst the back of the cardigan is plain. There is a row of seven cream buttons down the front.
The Jenny Kee black label is attached at the neck, and a small tag stating that this knit was made in Hong Kong. This dates the piece to the late 1980s or perhaps early 1990s when Jenny Kee outsourced her knitting production overseas.
The condition of this cardigan is good. There are no holes, snags or pulls to the knit, and the colours are intense and true, with no discolouration, fading, or runs, however, there are a few very small stains which have been outlined in white circles in the photographs. Some very light pilling is evident.
