This is a stunning, evening bag in the Puffy Kiss snap style. It features brilliant Amber and Goldtone Barrel and Seed beads in a floral, sunburst pattern. Made in Hong Kong, this gem dates from the late 1950’s. It is from a private collection and is in excellent vintage condition.
When you first hold this handbag, the sheer weight and the quality is evident. Then, while looking at the deep shine of the beads, the colors are shining back to you. Spotless clean inside and out, the rich Creme satin is rich and smooth.
The gleaming gold-plated frame shies with authority and closes as it should. The snake chain is smooth and has no kinks. Not one bead is missing. This is a very rare style and no doubt that it took a craftsman many months to complete.
Perfect for formal events or an excellent cellphone carrier, it will make a great impression.
Measures in at 6” x 5 ½”H x 1 ½ “D and the chain affords the formal 6” drop.
