This bag is the essence of "Kitsch." It doesn't get more funky than this while at the same time it represents the vibe of the mid century Although not in the greatest shape, it nevertheless, is priceless to me. What fun! The bag is large and it has a clear vinyl covering. Under the vinyl is a bag made of a champagne satin like fabric. On the front there is a palette that has a large peacock and cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms are done is baby pink stitches and they have a centered jewel. The branches also have hand painted foliage sprinkled with glitter. The bird is perched on the branch and he too has hand painted elements as well as glitter. There is a multitude of glass (plastic?) large stones that are multi faceted and these yellow and blue stones created a plumage that is magnificent. The peacock's body is completed with yellow and green stones and the red glitter adds additional sparkle. This palette reverberates mid century! There is gold trim on the surround. There is a white enameled frame and a gold tone link carry handle with a drop of 7 1/2". There is a flip up clasp. The inside is lined with the clear vinyl. There is an open pocket with a gold trim border. There isn't any marker's mark or identification. There are indications of use and age on the inside but nothing alarming. The measurements are 9 1/2"h x 11" w (at its widest) x 2"d. This bag has been used and there is evidence of that. However, nothing is significant and is usual for a bag of this age. However, I looked beyond these usage indications because I felt the motif was so funky and so typical of the times. It made me smile, and that's a good thing. Condition: Very Good VINTAGE Condition
