Perfect for a formal occasion is this vintage La Regale black satin and gold-toned metal evening bag from the 1980's-90's. It is a metal form covered in black satin fabric. The purse measures 6 1/2-inches wide by 4-inches from bottom to top of ball clasp and 2" deep (front to back). The gold-toned metal is a high-polish and has attachment half-circles for the 5/8-inch black satin handle as well as fold-down hidden attachments on the inside of the frame which hold a 44-inch long braided cord to wear it as a shoulder bag. The maker's fabric label is for "La Regale", a well-known maker of evening bags founded in the U.S. in 1950. Their specialty is evening bags such as this as well as heavily beaded bags, etc. This piece is in very good, used estate condition with no visible damage. There is a little bit of visible wear on one side of the satin case which is to be expected from use of a vintage item. It is as stylish today as the day it was made which we think is sometime in the 1980's-90's. As you can see from out photos the purse has its original label inside and is ready-to-wear to any special occasion.
