Quality and sophistication are guarantees when you buy a handbag designed by Paloma Picasso. This elegant purse defines that. Its simple design is striking and impressive. It is medium sized and has a rectangular shape. There are rounded elements to its structure. It has a fold over flap. It is made of a quality silk material that has a slight sheen. The ornamentation consists of six huge glass cabochons each set in a bezel setting of twisted gold tone metal. Each jewel has a diameter of just under one inch (including the bezel rim). The cabochons are half spheres and protrude from the bezel. This gives the bag dimension. The glass jewels are semi transparent and appear to have a wonderful glow. The colors are bright red, emerald green, deep purple and pumpkin orange. They are set on the front of the bag in a chevron pattern. All this combines to create a bag that has panache and confidence. The bag closes with a snap down clasp. There is a fabulous jewelry quality bright gold tone link chain that can be kept inside the bag if desired. The drop is 22". The inside is lined with a black satin fabric. There is an open slip pocket that contains the original Picasso pamphlet and a Neiman Marcus price tag (It sold in the 1980's for $595! WOW!!!). Paloma Picasso is printed in gold letters on the slip pocket. The inside is in pristine condition. The bag measures 8 1/2" w x 5 3/4"h x 1"d. The bag was well taken care of, it is in great condition. There are a few specs on the inside of the cover and a few very, very faint impressions on the back that can only be seen in direct light. None of this is at all significant but mentioned for accuracy. This bag can be dressed up or down. It is colorful, dramatic, sophisticated and expertly crafted. It is really fantastic!!!!!
