Color can effect one's mood. A beautiful blue sky can elevate while a dark grey sky can diminish. It is no wonder that I was attracted to this purse by the Colombetti fashion house, a brand that begin in the 1950's, and still has a boutique in Milan. The purse is small to medium size and it is hard structured. It is very rounded with a straight bottom that allows the purse to stand upright on its own. The purse is made from a resin (some refer to the material as lucite, but lucite is a different type of plastic) and it has a shiny mirror shine. The middle section is a shiny black and the sides are covered with strips of colorful resin strips. These strips are not straight but rather have a curve to them. The colors are taupe, navy, turquoise, violet, grey, cranberry, royal blue, red, green, pink, dark grey, silver, baby blue and gold. The order of these colors differ in the four quadrants . The effect is dynamic, striking and statement making. The bag closes with a gold tone metal clasp which is on the top of the bag. There is a tab which fits into a round peg to close the bag. There is a lovely gold tone link chain with a drop of 15". The chain can be tucked inside the bag so that the bag is then carried as a clutch. When the bag is opened the sides are a shiny patent leather. The inside is lined with a black leather (faux?) and there is an open slip pocket. The gold identification panel stating "Colombetti Milano Made in Italy" is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition with minor indications of use and age. The measurements are 8"w x 5"h x 3"d. The bag is in great condition. There are minimal scratches on the surface. There appears to be glue seepage around the clasp. Other than this, the bag presents beautifully. This bag is unusual, unique, timeless and it makes a tremendous statement. It has a unique vibe and flair. It will brighten your day! Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition
