It isn't easy finding a beautiful evening purse in a brown color. Everything is black, black, black! However, this vintage bag defies that trend and is an absolutely gorgeous brown silk evening bag made in France, circa mid century. It is slightly larger than most bags of this genre and typically is wider at the bottom than at the top which is arched. The material is a rich and regal milk chocolate brown silk. It is unusual since the purse bottom actually begins an inch or so below the frame (see pictures). At this point it is tightly pleated resulting in gentle and flowing folds. The bag has a "poofy" appearance. There is another unusual feature to this bag that is, there is a swirling and deeply quilted design towards the bottom which covers both the front and the back. This pattern adds interest, dimension and uniqueness to the bag. Really spectacular! The arched frame is part of a hard formed top that is flatly covered with the brown silk. The frame itself is a gold tone metal with shiny and bright aurora borealis rhinestones that are prong set. There is a decorative open work pull tag and a nice gold link carry chain with a drop of 4 1/2". The inside is lined with the same brown silk. There are two open pockets and a cloth label stating "Made in France" is affixed inside. There is a small coin purse made of the same brown fabric. The inside is in great condition without any signs of usage. The purse measures 9"w at its widest tapering to 5" towards the top, 7"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition with only very minuscule signs of use or age. This is a gorgeous French purse. If you need this hard to find color, this is the bag for you! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
