1940s Canadian sweater

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272137459625

This was sold to me as being early 1930s, hand knit in British Columbia for a First Nations wedding.  With the style of Lightning zipper stopbox it has, I don’t think I quite buy that provenance, but I will say it is an early one for the zip front cardigan style that would come to be so iconic in Canadian culture, most likely dating from the late 1940s.

Chest (pit to pit): 16-1/2″ (doubled = 33″)

Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 18″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22″
