If you are a fan of purses with an art deco vibe, then this small evening bag is for you! You do not often find bags with such strong deco details making this bag quite a find. The bag does not have any identification as to maker or country of origin. It is typically shaped and has a slight "poofy" look. The body of the bag is a very soft black velvet. Obviously a high quality fabric. The top is ruched resulting in folds. The frame is the "star" of the show. The hardware is brass and there is significant wear on the metal. But the two lucite pieces draws your eye away from the metal to these plastic pieces. These details are sculptural and carved in a step like manner. They have significant depth and have a torpedo like appearance (see pictures as they are difficult to describe using words). There is a double ball clasp that fits into an upright ring, these details are silver tone and add interest to the top of the bag. The top of the bag is "one of a kind" and exemplifies creativity in the design. Very unique and unusual. The velvet carry strap connects to the bag with brass hardware. There is a drop of 6". When opened the gold tone inner frame is highly engraved (a sign of a high end bag). The inside is lined with a black silk like fabric. It is very clean. The measurements of the bag are 6 1/4"h x 8"w x 1 1/2"d. The bag does show wear especially on the metal. However, considering its age (ca 1930's-'40's), it has held up well. It is its deco appearance that makes the statement, a statement that is not easy to find nowadays in its original state. Condition: Very Good VINTAGE Condition
