Robin's egg blue or turquoise. No matter how you describe the color of this striking bag, there is no doubt the color is gorgeous! This clutch bag was most probably designed by the Ingber handbag company, a prominent fashion brand from 1903 thru the 1960's. The label inside states "David's fifth avenue" which was a mid century fashion accessory store. The David label looks as though it was affixed over another and there is an original "Ingber" mirror inside. If my memory serves me, the Ingber company is credited with launching a revival of the foldover clutch. (However, I wouldn't "bet" on my memory!!!) Anyway, the bag certainly meets the fine standards of the Ingber company. The bag is a foldover that is huge when opened. It is made from a gorgeous leather that has a crackle to it. There is pleating. The color, as stated, is a soft but striking light blue, best described as robin's egg blue or turquoise. The color is calming and yet it recharges our spirits. The frame is the perfect complement to this wonderful blue color. The metal is a gold tone. It is encrusted with round and tear shaped cabochons that are individually prong set. The colors are snow white, tangerine orange and marbled turquoise. The stones are opaque. The tear drops extend beyond the frame which results in a significant accent to the bag. Two large kiss claps open and close the bag. There are two small round turquoise beads on the back part of the frame. The inside is lined with a blush satin material. There are two open pockets and one zippered one. Besides the mirror, there is a small satin coin purse still attached inside the bag. The inside is in very good condition with only the expected indications of wear and age. Nothing bad. Unfolded the bag measures 9"w x 10"h. Folded as a clutch the measurements are 9"w x 6"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition with minuscule evidence of wear and age. Worn with an all white outfit with turquoise or coral jewelry.......what a look! Don't be surprised if you get many "looks" and smiles. Just great! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
