Exquisite from side to side to side, this scrumptious purse is like a Dutch Masters still life painted in thread. The petals almost seem to move as light hits from different angles. You'll love carrying this dream purse, as well as simply gazing at it. It's floral art.
Identical pattern on both sides, with detail all around. Floral accents continue on the frame, which has the original snake chain attached (7" drop, first photo). This short chain can be replaced with a longer chain (18" drop, last photo) for a charge of $12. Just let us know when you order and we will send a follow-up invoice. Bag measures approximately 6.5" tall by 8" wide at bottom, and 1-1.5" deep. Plenty of room for a cell phone, and one tiny interior slip pocket will hold your love notes or business cards.
Vintage, estimated 1950-60's. Unmarked. Consistency in stitching suggests the floral fabric was machine made, however we suspect the bag was constructed in the home by a woman making her own purse from a pattern or kit. Padded lining with off-white satin. Excellent condition, no stains or snags!
