The peacock has always been a stunning and mesmerizing bird. Since they are so spectacular they have been revered in many countries over time. THey are a symbol of beauty and pride. This darling evening purse pays homage to this magnificent creature. I estimate this bag to be circa 1950'-60's and it does not have any makers mark of country of origin. It is a deep midnight blue, the darkest blue until black. THe material is a silk(?) but sturdy grosgrain. THe shape is fairly typical with the bottom being wider than the top. It is curved and rounded. An unusual feature is that it is layered with a apron or bib overlapping the purse body. This is on both sides. However, on the front side there is a representation of a peacock feather made of sequins that cover a lot of the surface. The feather is a combination of blues, greens and purple sequins. All shine and have an irridescent glow to them. Just like the plumage of the peacock. The feather is curved reflecting the curves of the bag. It is amazing how this one stunning detail can transform the bag. THe frame is covered with the same grosgrain material. There is a decorative shiny gold tone piece directly underneath the half moon piece that opens and closes the bag. This adds additional interest to the bag. A grosgrain carry strap has a drop of 5". The inside of the bag is lined with a shiny purple blue satin like fabric. There are two opened slip pocket with ruffled tops and bottoms. Included is a small coin purse in the same material. The inside is pristine without signs of wear of usage. Its measurements are almost 8"w x 6"h x 2"d. This is a high quality bag in what appears to be unused condition. Just as the peacock walks tall, so can you with this stunner on your wrist. A unique and classic beauty. Condition: Excellent+ VINTAGE Condition
