This sweet evening bag is made from the most gorgeous shade of light cocoa brown satin. You really don't' see this color very often in evening purses. It's a neutral shade that could be carried with many colors of clothing. The frame of the bag is gold tone and the purse closes with a single snap clasp. It has a single handle made from the same lovely brown satin. The inside of the bag is lined with a rich butter cream satin and has an attached coin purse made from the same color satin. There are no inner pockets or compartments. The colors of this purse are quite striking !
Condition: Very Good
There are several issues that I will mention....none of which really take away from the overall appearance of this vintage purse. First, there is a very slight stain on the back of the purse. I tried to photo this and it did not show up well at all....very hard to see in a photo, but there, none the less. There are several slight marks on one side of the satin covering the inner frame. This is not noticeable when the bag is closed and not very noticeable when the bag is open. And, finally, on the sides where the closing hinge has rubbed the satin there are slight discolorations....more noticeable on one side than the other. Again, one would have to really be looking for this in order to see it.
