This purse is made of a very fine cream damask silk. The damask design is made up of flowers that are accented with shades of light green, pink and blue. The frame is made of brushed and textured gold tone metal. A silk cord handle is woven in and out the two loops on the frame and the frame itself. It closes by pulling on the cords. The inside is lined with a solid color cream silk. There is some wear on the silk on the outside of the purse. There is a gather on each side of the purse and at the top of one the silk is wearing thin. There is also an area on the front to the right side of the big pleat. The silk is quite fragile so there are other areas where it is close to wearing thin. I probably wouldn't use this purse--it is more of a collectible or display piece. When flat it measures 10" X 7 1/4".
