Never be out of money! The Walborg bag is heavily laden with "gold" coins although I would not try to use them! Walborg was a mid century fashion house that created bags of varying styles, all were quality made. This particular bag is fun and unusual. There is a gold lame body that has a "cage" of chains around it. The chains are gold tone with large and small links. Attached to each of the 9 chains are 3-4 coins on both the front and the back. This results in approximately 35 coins on the front and 35 on the back. The coins are the size of a quarter and they are different shades of gold: some have a slight tint or rose gold, others are more true to the "real" gold color. Thefront of the coins have the profiles of a woman and the words "Queen Victoria". The others have a profile of a man and the words "Italiana Republica". The backs have an image of an eagle, some words and the year 1964. The engravings are all highly detailed and most interesting. The coins dangle and jiggle with movement. There is sort of a "gypsy"effect. The frame is a shiny gold tone and the decorative shoulder chain has a drop of 10". The bag opens/closes with a kiss claps The inside is a yellow gold tone satin fabric. There is an open slip pocket and the Walborg cloth label is affixed inside. There are the most minimal indications of wear and use inside. The measurements are 6 1/2"h x 6"w x 1". The overall condition of the bag is great. Sure to attract attention this bag is kinetic with its movement and unusual with its bounty of attached coins. Instead of coins inside the bag this one has them on the outside! Sort of the opposite of the norm! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
