Offering a vintage purse by contemporary purse designer, Mary Frances, who began her business being inspired by the "vibe" of San Francisco. She creates many types of bags including many novelty bags that brings a smile or even a laugh when looked at. Her bags often have ornate, glitzy and "over the top" ornamentation and are hand done by people from all over the world, sort of like a cottage industry. This bag is rectangular and it has curves. It is very wide and not very tall. It has an outer flap. Most of the bag is covered with a tweed like fabric which is the result of tufts of threads sewn onto a raw wide weave fabric. This bottom fabric has a "goldish" cast to it especially in artificial lighting. The tufts stick out from the flat surface and thus appear very "tweedy." Some tufts are longer than others,some are flat against the purse. These accents are done in threads of pale purple, wheat, brown and gold colors. The result purposely looks worn and raw. Fabulous looking! The middle panel is bordered in brown leather and there are small diamond shapes in shades of brown leather . In the middle of this is an outrageous and huge jeweled medallion. It is in the shape of a stylized flower and has bezel shaped jewels of different colors. These jewels surround a middle oval shaped pale yellowish moon stone(?) that itself measures 1 1/4"h x 3/4"w. The bag closes with a magnetic snap. There is a antiqued looking chain that has a drop of 14". This chain can be removed from the bag and the bag can then be worn as a clutch. The inside is lined with a linen type fabric that has a stylized pattern. There are two open pockets. The MARY FRANCES label is sewn inside. The inside is very clean but there are indications of age, this may be purposeful since the bag has a very vintage look. The Mary Frances paper tag is still attached and there is a Mary Frances brass charm on the shoulder chain which also has the look of age as does the beaded chain that is attached to it. Again, I believe that all this was done in accordance with giving the bag its unique vintage appearance. The bag measures 13"w x 6" x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition. This vintage bag has captured the essence of vintage. It is very attractive in its raw and "tough" appearance. Yet there is the very feminine center medallion. That's the ying yang of this bag and it really works! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
