This item sold on June 20, 2012.
Made of silk with Chinese silk embroidery. Frame gilded with wonderful fine Art Deco designs. The Metal fittings are very solid and of excellent quality.
Both sides are embroidered with various stunningly detailed motifs. On the whole, the embroidery is intact, so the bag can very much be used. Nevertheless, I do see some loose threads hanging, please see the detail photos.
The stones are large faux-turquoise or faux-jade, probably Czechoslovakian glass.
Please note: The interior silk lining shows some age and discoloration as is normal for a purse of this age. I am hoping that some of this will be remedied at the cleaner's where it currently is but we will see. There is a small inside pocket and a small coin purse.
Definitely a purse you can fall in love with.
Height: 13 cm
Width: 20 cm
This piece will not be available to ship until at least July 1st as it is currently being professionally cleaned but it can be reserved or bought now.
