Vintage metal pillow evening bag/purse/clasp.

This beautiful bag is made of what I believe is brass plate.

The hinge, clasp and chain are all structurally perfect, and the clasp is very 20s 30s in shape, with black enamel detailing.

The body of the bag has some minor areas where the plating has come away, and there is some discolouration of the plating (see photos)- but no more than you'd expect from a vintage item, and certainly not enough to detract from the loveliness of the bag.

Inside the bag is lined with dark purple/burgundy silk grosgrain. This has come away on one corner - could doubtless be glued back, but I leave that to the buyer, since the bag is perfectly usable without this minor repair.

Size: diagonally corner to corner it measures 7"/18cm. Circumference around the longest part (over the metal banding) is 14"/36cm. The chain measures approx 34"/87cm.

There's room in here for all your evening needs, and the secure clasp means nothing can fall out/be lost.
