If Goldilocks or Gretel (from Hansel and Gretel) had a pocketbook this would be it. For some reason, it reminds me of those fairy tales since its sweetness and innocence are obvious. The Isabella Fiore company began in the last decade of the 20th century and has advanced handbag production to an art form. Their bags often have a bohemian spirit about them. This small bag is made from a soft butterscotch colored suede ( it might by ultra suede) with cranberry colored suede on the bottom. The suede is very luxurious and is of high quality. There is embroidery that creates two rows of flowers on a trellis or hexagon grid. The flowers are large and are done in primary colors such a blue, red, yellow, orange as well a pink. The flowers all have leaves and are all different. The trellis is a deep forest green. The flowers, although very simple, "shout out" with an innocent intensity. The bag has a pewter tone metal frame and a kiss lock. There is a twisted silver tone chain with a drop of 5 1/2". There is hardware inside the bag that can be used to keep the chain inside and use the bag as a clutch (similar to the Judith Leiber mechanism). The inside is lined with a nubby brownish material. There is a zippered pocket. The "Isabella Fiore" sewn in tag is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition. The measurements of the purse are 8"w x 5 1/2"h x 2"d. The bag is in excellent condition without significant signs of wear or age. I doubt it was ever used.
Although this purse could be used by a little girl, it is also appropriate for an adult. Whoever uses it, will quickly be transformed into an enchanted fairy tale. Simple charm at its best! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
