*circa: late 1950s to early 1960s

Purse measures:
Width:2 1/2"
height:11 1/2" (including the handle)

The purse is in fair condition, sold as is. There are 5 of the large black jewels missing which are really hard to see with all of the embellishments present and a lifting of the gimp trim on one edge. The back, plain fabric side shows a few scratches and/or lightly discolored areas, not very glaring but they are there. There is wear at the back bottom corners of the fabric and a couple small holes in the lining near the hinge of the frame. The noted concerns are reflected in the pricing.
