Unusual vintage 1970s boho hippie incised pillow brass clutch bag with silk tassel handle

Groovy baby! here we are at my era - the 1970-s hippie thing.

I love the nod to eastern religion and the workmanship - there is a tribal almost medieval feel to this little brass satchel.

Beautifully made semi circle (a three quarter moon I think) incised with a pattern of flower icons and texture on both sides. The top is dips in the shape of a saddle.

The clasp is a simple bent tab of copper which snugly catches on to the raised section on the bottom.

Two tubes of copper hold the long twisted black silk cord and either side a tassel hangs. So exotic!

It is in excellent vintage condition - some patina and age and wear - I havent cleaned it as I prefer the old look.

Hinge is strong and intact and the clasp works a treat.
It is 5 1/2" (14cm) across X 3" (7.5cm) high in the middle X 1 1/4" (3.4cm) deep.

The shoulder strap is 51" (129cm) long and is 1/4" (.5cm) thick made up of two intertwined strands and ending in a tassel each side. The tassels are 3" (7.5cm) long.

It is big enough to fit a mobile phone, a lipstick and a small change purse- what else do you need?

Time to channel the inner boho in you.
