A lovely old hand embroidered evening bag in black silk, sheered and pouch-like fold-over style with a beaded chain handle and a nicely preserved silk lined interior. Ready for prom, wedding, evenings out. Widest measurement is 9", other measurements noted on our photos. I find no maker's label inside. I'm not a purse expert but am selling off a collection, so if you know more about this one, please do email us. Thanks.
Good to very good condition, no holes nor splits to be found. Interior lining silk is still in nice form, as well. No stains nor odors. Beadwork enhances the frame of the bag, which is hinged to open wide, and the original chain handle is also accented by beads. Lovely multi-color embroidery work, silk on silk. All hand embroidered.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
