Product Description

This 1930s evening bag is of exquisite simple but effective design. The black silk grosgrain, which is gathered front and back into the frame, gives this bag an opulent and rich texture. Of particular note is the glorious chunky angular brass frame entirely covered by hand threaded beads and microbeads. Particularly gorgeous is the enameling work on the top of the frame. The overall color composition of the frame is extra feminine with the pale blues, gold, pink, turquoise and blues in direct contrast but complementing the black fabric. Pretty and ornate is the closure itself. Fine chain handle. The interior is lined with heavy black silk satin finished at the frame with gold soutache cord. Interior has two small mirror pockets facing each other.
