This is a charming and unique purse by the iconic designer Nettie Rosenstein. Still held in high regard today, Nettie Rosenstein was among the most respected designers of the mid century. She is known for her meticulous craftsmanship as well as her interesting designs. She designed jewelry, purses, other accessories as well as womens attire. She is know for the "little black dress" that can comfortably go from day to night. Her creations are popular today and still command high prices. This bag is different in that it is shaped in a baguette style. It uses curves in its shape. The background color is a soothing robin's egg blue. There is a floral design on top done in chenille yarn, very similar to a crushed velvet effect. There are dense areas as well as less thick areas. This gives the bag dimension and depth. The floral palette is created with a chartreuse like yellow thread mixed with off white yarn. There is open work throughout allowing the blue background color to be seen. The flowers are big and dynamic. The entire floral is a striking work of art. The bag is trimmed with an off white leather and the carry handle has this trim as well as a strip of the adorned fabric in between. The handle is attached to the body of the bag with off white hardware that appears to be wood but could be metal. The drop is 2". The off white fold back clasp also gives the appearance of being wood. The gussets and bag's bottom give the impression that the bag has three compartments, but this is not the case. The inside is the same soft blue material. There is a large ruffled pocket. "Nettie Rosenstein and Made in FLorence Italy" is engraved in gold inside. The inside is in great condition and there aren't any significant issues to note. The measurements are 9 1/2"w x 4 1/4"h x 1 5/8"d. This purse is in amazing condition considering it was probably made in the 1950's. There is very slight soiling on the front but you have to look closely to see it, mentioned for accuracy. Still maintains its excellent rating. Unique, gentle,classy and finely made, this purse is a winner!!!! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
