Vintage 1940's Saks Fifth Avenue Goldtone Purse Clam Shell - Made in Italy

Retro 1930s / 1940s Saks Fifth Avenue Hard Case Goldtone Clam Shell Purse with Gold Velvet Lining and Decorative Piping - Made in Italy.

Gorgeous swirled design with thicker goldtone rope chain. The velvet lining is a beautiful gold in color with matching satin piping.

Purse measures 7.5" (19cm) at widest point (near base) and 5.5" (14cm) top to bottom. Opening measures 2.75" (7cm) with 4.75" (12cm) inside depth. Rope chain has a hanging length of 16.5" (42cm).

Very good vintage condition with a 5/8" by 1/2" wear to the goldtone on the side of the purse...this is not a flaking but more of a loss of color - see last pic at left. There is a 5/8" area of semi loose piping near purse opening - next to last pic at left. Other than the mentioned flaws, the purse is in lovely condition inside and out. The velvet lining is very clean with no staining or spotting of any kind.

Saks Fifth Avenue Label dates this purse from the 1930's to the 1940's.
