Here we go again! How many French purses from the mid century can one person buy? A lot!!!!! I am such a "sucker" for these treasures. You can't get anything similar nowadays in the stores and this one being offered today is a real "gem." This bag is in "near new" condition and is a bit larger than the average mid century French purse. The body of the purse is curvaceous and the sides extend in a pointed manner. It is made of a soft black silk that has a slight sheen . It is tightly ruched at the top of both sides. This results in gentle flowing pleats throughout. However, it is the frame that makes a grand statement. It too is curved at the sides and is big, thick and important. It is covered entirely in micro beads, tightly sewn in "strings" of gold, white or silver. They are hand wired from the under side of the frame. Braided white and gold beads surround the border of the frame. The amazing element are the two corners of the frame which are covered in a concentric circles of clear and sparkling rhinestones. These stones are multi faceted and prong set. Threaded silver beads are sewn in between the stones. This creates quite a twinkle and shine. There is a vertical strip of rhinestones and silver beads in the middle of the frame atop of the round tab that opens the bag. This tab is designed with the same rhinestones and tiny beads as is the rest of the purse. Wow! Uniquely fabulous! There is a serpentine gentle chain for carrying the bag with a drop of 5". The inside is lined with black silk. There is an open slip pocket but there is no identification of the maker. It is undoubtedly French. The inside is exceptionally clean. The measurements of the purse are 9'w (at its widest) x 7"h x 2"d. My iphone6 fits inside with room to spare. The condition of the bag is amazing. It appears not to have been used a lot, if at all. This purse is timeless and classic French. It is large enough for today's gal and is an "eye stopper." Just "plain" gorgeous, although not "plain" at all!!!! Condition: Near Mint Excellent VINTAGE Condition
