DESCRIPTION: This is a fabulous vintage tapestry handbag. The vibrant floral design is machine-made in the needlepoint styling using wool and silk. The multitude of colors within the design are specifically arranged to create dimension and depth. A distinct border appears on the gusset as a simpler version of the large design that appears identical on both sides of the handbag. The surrounding black border complements the brass frame embossed with black enamel. The interior is of black faille with one pocket; the handbag is finished with gold snake chain and kiss lock closure.
WHY I LIKE IT: The style of this handbag is classic and the vibrant colors are a showstopper!
BACKSTAMP(S): Unmarked. We believe this handbag to be of Austrian origin.
DIMENSIONS: 9-1/2” x 7-1/2” x 1-1/4” gusset
CONDITION: Excellent to Very Good. The frame has been cleaned and polished with exceptional results.
