This purse is in pristine, mint condition. It is black patent & is lined throughout in black taffeta. The chain is gold tone and can be extended to use as shoulder bag or doubled to use as handbag. There is one center compartment that opens and closes with a clasp and one lined compartment on either side. Inside is one zippered pocket and a goldtone tag that states "American". The purse measures 7" x 5" & would make a perfect evening bag.
