Offered is a lovely vintage ladies necessary bag. At first, we were going to call this a work bag like for sewing items. But, this is way too dainty and pretty, so will call it a necessary bag for ladies "particulars." The fabric is silk-like, but we feel in way too good of condition with no shattering to be real silk. The color is a butter tone with a romantic design consisting of a cartouche outlined with pink and blue roses and small yellow blossoms. The drawstring bag has gold tone satin ribbons for drawing it close. It is lined in an old gold silky like fabric. Someone took a lot of time in creating this bag which we discovered at the bottom of the bag. A round heavy paper (cardboard?) forms the bottom. It is covered with the lining fabric with blue feather stitching--so delicate. The bag is 11 1/2" long; 12 1/2" at the widest with a 5 3/4" diameter bottom. This is fine condition with no stains and no holes on the outside, but Please Note: the rod through which the ribbons draw has some holes. Original listing price $45 Item 52128a Lot L5/1/8
