This beautiful vintage hand beaded silver Walborg evening bag belonged to my mother-in-law. I believe it was made in the 40's. It was handmade in Belgium for the Walborg company and there is a tag inside the purse with the Wahlbog label and the large Wahlborg W. The inside has a small pocket with the original Wahlborg mirror inside. It looks like there might be a few beads missing from the handle, but they aren't noticeable. It is a beautiful vintage piece which is still large enough to carry your essentials such as wallet, cell phone, makeup and some smaller items.

Purse measurements: approx. 5.75 inches (length) from top to bottom and 8.5 inches (wide).


History:
The Walborg Company was started by Hilde Walberg Weinberg in the 1940s in New York City. Hilde created all the designs for the beaded purses herself and then sent them to Europe (Belgium,Italy,Francce) to be made. From the late 1950s and on, all of her beaded purse designs were made in the Far East. In1954 a show room was opened for the purses on Madison Avenue. Walborg purses were very popular and known for their original designs and quality craftsmanship.
