This large & fabulous vintage handbag is from the 1950's. It is manufactured by Fabrique in France. The bag is round, black patent with a huge floral needlepoint insert on the front. It features cabbage roses in pink & rose colors with lavender tendrils and green leaves. The clasp is goldtone and looks regal. The inside of the bag is lined in beautiful black satin. The inside has one zippered compartment and one open pocket. It is in pristine condition. However, the consignment shop I purchased it from marks their purses with a red mark (about 1/4") on the inside of the bag (see photo) and I've priced it accordingly. This purse is a piece of wearable art. It measures 11 1/2" x 12". The patent handle is a 5" drop to the purse.
