An elegant fine quality vintage Art Deco evening bag with a jeweled filigree top.
Shimmering silk brocade in beige, pale coral, pale sage green and light beige. The fabric has a sheen though there is no metallic thread.
The heavy woven silk has an Oriental motif of dragons, Buddhas and waves.
Expertly made with great attention to detail, the filigree top is set with nine transparent red glass cabochons. The pull has a fan shaped drop with a single red jewel.
The metal frame goes down the sides at an angle which creates the nice puffy shape of the purse.
The creamy silk interior is near mint, a slide pocket holds the original mirror, there is a small slide pocket on the opposite side for a lipstick or comb.
Measures 8" across the center, the bottom is 5" across, the top of the purse is 4" across, top to bottom is 5.5". The chain handle is 6", the filigree top is 3.5" by 2".
Condition is excellent, no damage and minimal wear, there is a very light stain on the pocket. (photo 6) The hinge and clasp are secure.
Surprisingly neutral, an understated beauty of designer quality and in lovely condition.
