DESCRIPTION: La Regale Ltd (now La Regale LLC), New York, was founded in 1950 and family-owned since 1977.
This sophisticated evening bag resembles a pouch clutch with silver metal rope chain. It is one of the most beautifully detailed hand beaded bags you’ll find in the vintage market.
It was created with white pearlescent beads to form a fantastic design that repeats on both sides. The design features three crystals per side and under all types of lighting, this bag has a magnificent sheen and iridescence about it. The bag is lined in white satin with one card pocket, and hand stitched to the metal frame. The bag has an unusual lid with silver metal snap closure. The rope chain tucks neatly inside if you choose to carry it as a clutch.
WHY I LIKE IT: The La Regale tagline is “Redefining Evening” and true to its excellent reputation, this is not only a redefined evening bag, but a statement bag with fine pedigree.
DIMENSIONS: 7.5” (width at base) x 5-1/4” x 1-3/4” gusset. Chain 21” drop.
TRADEMARK: La Regale Ltd., Handmade in China
