Stunning Vintage 1950s 1960s gold mesh evening bag from Oroton West Germany.
What a classy and beautiful bag this is.
I have another slightly smaller and a different shape here:
Never dates or goes out of fashion.
This lovely evening bag is 7" (17.5cm) wide X 5 1/2" (13.3cm) to the top of the clasp.
It has a single snake chain brass handle that is 11" (28cm) long and firmly attached to the frame.
It is in very good vintage condition. The frame is goldtone with some corrosion spots from age on one side.
The brass ball clasp is firm. The interior is not marked and has good colour. The handle has most of the goldtone rubbed off back to the brass.
The mesh itself is completely intact - no bits missing, but there are a couple of tiny patches where the goldtone is starting to corrode. To the eye this looks slightly darker than the gold. These are so few that the bag has still the beautiful shine and sparkle that you would expect from a gold mesh bag - plenty of bling left in this old girl!
The inside is lined with a dark apricot silky fabric and has a pocket and the Oroton cloth tag.
This is a lovely and elegant bag to add to a vintage collection or buy for a special occasion.
