Mrs. Hilde Walborg designed handbags and accessories that even today, they are highly coveted. However, her most prized creations were the beaded bags from Italy and Belgium. This stunning Dark Blue Evening Clutch was handmade in Belgium. In a spectacular Art Nouveau pattern, this rare Walborg is from a private collection and is in excellent condition. Will be the crowning touch to any event.
From the 1950's, it gleams the colors of the spectrum from the barrel beads. Each of these high end models took months to complete. None were alike. What is unique with this Walborg is the fabric background is of a silk-soft cloth that even after more than a half century, the fabric has an outstanding sheen. The overall effect is pure glamour and you will know right away that this is not a mainstream evening bag. All of the beads are in a pattern.
The caviar beads make the base and the colorful barrel beads are the center of the palate. You can clearly see the intricate work which is a hallmark of these rare handmade Walborg’s from Belgium. The colors are brilliant throughout. Open the kiss snap and you are greeted to genuine Dark Blue silk lining. It is flawless inside. The shimmering silk leaves no doubt. The snaps are smooth and clean and the tag is intact.
Outside, the shimmering beads give it a luxurious air and the colors add to the overall elegance of this fine Walborg. Only a few missing beads but, what is truly rare and wonderful is inside, there is a small bag with those beads inside so you can easily have them restrung. As it is, the missing beads are not noticeable and are easily replaced. There are no other issues with this fine, ultra-rare Walborg.
The frame is straight and closes as it should. This is a Walborg that will make an outstanding presentation and it is a rare Walborg that will continue to climb in value.
The dimensions are: 7 ½ "L x 4 ½ "H.
