Vintage 1930s Blouse worn by Dorothy Lamour

A really gorgeous blouse on it's own, but the connection to famed actress Dorothy Lamour makes it truly special.  1930s mustard-yellow cotton with neutral embroidery around the neck.  Closes in the back.  

The blouse has a stamp on the back from Paramount Pictures (there's also one on the front, but this may be a transfer from the back stamp).  There is a tag in the back with Dorothy Lamour's name.  There is also a photo of her in the blouse on the set of the 1938 movie Tropic Holiday.
