DOFAN French Doe Skin Suede Purse Handbag Gold Floral Jewelled Clasp. 8" X 6" and quite sleek and trim lined. Double thin handled straps for easy carry. Gorgeous goldtone large sculptural floral clasp inlaid with set faux onyx stone cabochons for a dark and tailored look with a highly stylish yet feminine FRENCH allure. Original mirror in plastic wrap still intact and both mirror and purse are signed. Although not as famous as the great Chanel bags, they were so pricey and sought after there were indeed fakes of them made soon after the period. This signed mirror guarantees originality. So does the TAURUS logo printed on the interior. Doe skin suede tends to sometimes lose color if not maintained with proper suede brushing. Excellent vintage condition.
Some advertising for the firm states: "Mindful that handbags should be functional, the French imagination conjures up styles that are totally new. Whether in fine suede for dress, or in sport deldi for casual wear, all bear distinctive treatments. Note such features as a bird-like shape, a winged collar, a long, lean slung over the shoulder bag, a lid that lifts. Note jeweled frames, hand embroideries, use of rhinestone trims, of jeweled clasps."
