THis purse is the definition of classic. You don't get more sophisticated than this. It is timeless and smart, as are all the creations of the House of Lanvin, the oldest fashion house in France. Jeanne Lanvin, founder of the company instilled a sense of timeless perfection in all her works and this ethic has been followed to this day. THis purse probably dates about mid century and of course it was made in France. It is made of a soft black silk and yet the fabric appears to be very durable. It has a foldover flap and an optional carry strap made of braided silk cord (drop of 21"). The carry cord is tied at the top and there are bullet shaped goldtone hardware at each end. THe purse closes with a push in snap closure. On the front outside there is the iconic Lanvin double "L". You push down on this goldtone logo to operate the snap closure. The logo is in very good condition with a few minimal signs of wear. The inside is black silk and there is an open slip pocket. THe leather signature label stating "Lanvin Paris Made in France" is affixed inside. The inside is in excellent condition. THe measurements are 8"w x 6"h x 1 1/2"d. And that's it. THe purse is in wonderful condition, there are a few very subtle signs of wear and age,such as a small impression mark on front and back and a few tiny, tiny snags on the back. None of this alters the wonderful visual impression of this bag. Here is a purse without the bells and whistles. However, it is timeless, elegant and stylish. It is for the woman whose confidence allows her to make a statement by wearing a simple, yet regal purse that will forever be able to be worn. And what a bargain price!
