This is a beautiful find and Andre Cellini evening bags are simply outstanding! This bag is covered in black bugle beads with the front having a very large design in light and dark gold bugle beads and a smaller design on the back. The bottom of the evening bag is V-shaped with a scalloped edge heavily reinforced with rows of small round black beads as is the area around the frame. The inside of the padded handbag is covered in black satin and it has one side pocket highlighted with the metal Andre Cellini trademark tag. The bag has a shoulder snake chain strap that hangs 15" from the shoulder. It can be tucked inside so the bag can be carried as a clutch if desired.
I see a couple of loose threads but no missing beads. Overall, this bag is in wonderful vintage condition. It is very clean and odor free. The bag is 5 1/2" x 7".
