Rare find! Vintage French first Holy communion suit with accessories for a young boy.
I regularly see communion dresses but it's the first time I find a suit.
It is in very good condition.
Dating from the late 60s or 70s.

Black jacket and grey trousers.
Complete with its bow armband, a pocket square, a rosette with a mother of pearl cross attached.

Jacket and trousers are wool / polyester mix.
The jacket has lovely details and lining.
The armband and rosette feel like silk but are syntehtic.
Rosette and armband are stitched to the jacket but could easily be removed (just a few stitches).
Trousers have six inside buttons for braces. waist is quite high.

Some small imperfections due to age and use:
- the buttons are worn,
- the armband, square pocket and rosette have small rust stains. Not very visible in the photos but slightly more in real life.
- two small holes on the trousers near buttons.

It was preserved well by the previous owner.
