Stunning. Another beautiful bag by Walborg is this glittering, caviar beaded clutch. From the early-nineteen thirties on, Walborg, were the ultimate in luxurious beaded handbags and accessories. They were very, very expensive. From New York City, these fine treasures were seen in the top, most prestigious stores at the time such as Saks Fifth Avenue.
Today, Walborg of this era are highly collectible with the models hand-beaded in Belgium, such as this circa 1937 gem, and from France the most prized. This gem is in excellent condition.
As with any Walborg, the quality stands out. The brilliant beads all give every color of the spectrum and what’s more, the kiss-snap closure is adorned with two, large rhinestones and they glitter with the spectrum as well for a dazzling effect. The beads are in place with just a few missing that are not noticed. The Dark Bronze genuine silk lining is clean with just one easily repaired tear on the frame covering.
The beads are in a circular pattern and from every angle, the colors show. The frame is intact with no looseness. And there are no odors of age, no ink, and no shattering of the silk. There is a single slip pocket and the original tag is present and clearly reads “Hand Beaded in Belgium.”
Aside from the few beads missing and the minor tear, this Walborg is in excellent condition for a close to eighty-year-old clutch. The beads can easily be replaced.
This Walborg is a bag that will make the perfect accessory to any formal event and it will make a great impression.
The dimensions are 8 “L x 3 ½”H x 2“D.
