I find the beauty of this matching 1950s bag and pair of gloves just breathtaking! I could see Grace or Audrey in a full-skirted black dress with these beautiful accessories!
I believe the gloves and the bag are made of satin. The bag is embroidered in flowers on the front with three smaller flowers embroidered on the back. The fabric is gathered and pleated at the top of the handle. The fine chain handle is attached on opposite sides of the frame so that the lovely bag can be opened without spilling all its secrets! The pearl clasp twists to open. While small, this pretty bag is quite spacious, enabling a lady to carry the essentials, both modern and vintage! Yes, a mobile phone could easily go alongside make-up, tissues etc
Yes, the gloves do look small! The only label inside indicates the size 6 and a half. There is a little “give” but not much.
