In genuine Calfskin Leather and trimmed in plated Gold, this is a Bag by Dorian Evening Bag. From the 1940's, this bag was made specifically for the few who could afford the highest quality. Look closely, the pictures show it very well. Leather was used for only but a few handbags from the handbag makers at the time but Calfskin was used for the top of the line. As is even today, only the top designers use Calfskin. This Dorian is in excellent condition and is from a private collection.
The Art-Deco design of this Dorian is elegant and beautiful from every angle. It has that feel that exudes quality. The smell of rich leather greets you. You can see the quality of the Calfskin by the reflection of the brilliant, formal Gold-plated latch. It is a latch of sheer quality. The sculpted latch pulls down and the flap lifts from its pin set.
Inside, it is flawless and spotless clean. No odors of age, just a rich, clean aroma of a well-kept Dorian. There are two, Amber Silk lined slip pockets with one trimmed in gold lame. Directly across is the zippered security pocket. The name is still visible and to the left is: Genuine Calfskin. The Black Silk lining is clean and shimmers beautifully. Perfect for your essentials.
On the outside, the Calfskin is smooth and rich. No signs of wear and full of color. The profile shows the gusseted sides and they are perfect as well. The dual chains and the rings are smooth, and shine as plated gold should. Gold does not tarnish. Nowhere does this Dorian look close to seventy-years old.
This Bag by Dorian has just enough space to carry your essentials with discretion to any event.
