There are occasions when you don't need to take out your "top-notch" handbag to be well dressed. Sometimes your clothes or jewelry provides enough glitz to demand "sunglasses." Even though you own an evening purse dramatically adorned with bling, to wear it in this circumstance would be "overkill." Yet, who wants to spend more money on another less conspicuous purse? Here's the solution: Offering two gorgeous small French purses that although totally covered in sequins, are content taking "second stage" to the other fashion items. Each bag is small, both measuring 7"w, one being 4"h, the other 6". The gold bag is completely covered with gold sequins sewn in vertical lines. There is a sequined border which is outlined with teeny tiny gold glass beads. The bag is shiny and bright. There is a sequined wrist strap on the back which is also trimmed with gold beads. I count less than 6 missing sequins. The bag opens and closes with a zipper whose pull tag has a chain and decorative ball attached to it. The inside is lined in an off white grosgrain fabric. There are a few, not many, indications of wear or age.
The label inside reads "Longchamps Made in France." (Longchamps is a highly regarded French fashion house). The second bag has an art deco/art nouveau vibe. It believe it to be older than the gold bag, perhaps from the 1920's or '30's. It's shape has curves as does the pattern created by the sequins. The sequins are of various colors: deep and dark navy grey, antiqued gold and iridescent aurora borealis among others. The pattern on the front differs from the back of the bag. The front presents swirls with medallions while the back has a large stylized "star" made of very small champagne colored and red sequins. There are tubular glass beads throughout outlining the various shapes and minute glass seed beads bordering the "star". The frame is antiqued brass with decorative engravings. There is a kiss clasp and a small carry chain with a drop of 4". The inside is lined with a black silk and there is a sewn in "Made in France"label. The inside is in very good shape. Both purses
are in very good condition. Although beautifully crafted, both these purse by nature of their size, are sure to be noticed but will not overwhelm an outfit. They stylishly complement that rhinestone studded gown or crystal waterfall necklace. And both can be bought at one bargain price!!!!! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
