Description

This lovely vintage handbag is by the fabulous design house WALBORG. Beautifully hand micro-beaded in France in the 1950's using jet black glass beads in tiny rounds beads in an intricate swirling floral design with glints of sparkle from the faceted tubes weaved inside. A truly beautiful purse that is perfect for any vintage inspired evening collection.

Approximate measure: 6 inches high, 10 inches wide, handle drop length is 6 inches on a 14 inch chain strap. Frame opens about 5 inches.

As far as I can see, all beads are intact; but this is micro-beading and so, I can miss one or a perhaps few. This is an elegant evening bag, in very good condition, but you should expect to see some signs of age. There is an area on the frame that has been scuffed or scratched shown in image #5. Black satin lining has 2 inside pockets, one is labeled MADE IN FRANCE, by hand - WALBORG, very clean. Lift open and snap close clasp, adorned with marcasite and a rhinestone center.

PLEASE NOTE: I have done one repair on this piece. The center rhinestone on the clasp, was once a pearl. But the pearl had lost the majority of its pearl coating and was chipped through to the discolored center. I replaced it with a snug fitting rhinestone piece I had salvaged from an old earring. It's a perfect fit, a solid repair and a fine combination. Also note that one of the marcasite stones are missing; unfortunately, I don't have a replacement.
