Wonderful, clean, clutch purse which appears to be unused. A three piece, matching, clutch purse with a matching compact and a cigarette case. All the pieces are covered in a silky/satin Taffeta fabric! The decorations on the pieces are made of a silver metallic brocade with a scene of a Japanese garden.
All in great condition with the exception of the front of the clutch bag is one slightly lighter than the back, and the elastic inside the cigarette case has not stood the test of time as with most elastic of this age. From the 1940's or 50's. The cigarette case could by used for today's business cards as a card holder.
The powder compact has never been used and has a puff and a fabric sifter. The sides of the compact and cigarette case are silver metal and all in great condition.
The very slight fading on the one side and elastic is the only issues in this otherwise perfect set. The purse is 8" wide and 5" deep.The clutch handbag has a carrying strap on the back side and also 3 pockets on the inside. One compartment would hold a pen or lipstick.
The compact is 4" across, and the cigarette case is 3 1/2" by 2 3/4" . The cigarette case would also make a lovely business card case if you don't smoke. So Retro.
There is no label but very well made. Rex Fifth Ave made purses like this that had all the matching accessories and so did "Pegi Paris". Both made clutch bags at this time that were decorated with rich fabrics and the metallic brocade during the late 40's through the 1950's Very pretty in pink! No stains. What you see in the picture is a shadow as I like to use natural light to create the most accurate color.
